Claire Thorogood, deputy director at Wiltshire College said:

“John Williams Heating Services have been selected as the overall winner based upon their unwavering commitment to providing quality apprenticeship opportunities to young people and their passion for promoting the benefits of apprenticeships to other businesses.”

“John Williams Heating Services have employed apprentices since 2011 and they intend to continue to offer more opportunities to apprentices in the future.  Promotion of apprenticeship opportunities through outreach to local colleges and school leavers ensures that young people are aware of the fantastic career opportunities that an apprenticeship brings.  The support for apprentices throughout their programme through dedicated mentoring from an experienced engineer allows for their apprentices to learn and develop their skills on the job.   There are high expectations set for apprentices within the organisation and for this reason the apprenticeship programme is rewarding in terms of witnessing the development of young people to increase their expertise and grow in confidence and maturity.  John Williams Heating Services Limited is proud to contribute to the skilled workforce of Wiltshire through their apprenticeship programme.”

“As an Apprenticeship Ambassador for the Skills Funding Agency Debbie Williams gives her time and expertise on a voluntary basis to raise awareness of apprenticeships and communicate the advantages of engaging with the programme to other employers which directly supports the growing numbers of apprenticeship vacancies being made available by business in Wiltshire. ”
