SK celebrates National Apprenticeship Week

This week is the 12th annual National Apprenticeship Week, March 4th-8th, and what better time to pay recognition to our very own apprentices and the ongoing commitment Sylvester Keal show for apprenticeships.


National Apprenticeship Week is a celebration of apprenticeships, aiming to bring apprentices and employers from across the country together to celebrate the success and positive impact the schemes have gained for individuals and businesses.


At SK we have several apprentices who are currently undertaking courses with us such as Holly Dales, who has recently been nominated for an ‘Apprenticeship Star Award’.


Holly is completing the Business Administration apprenticeship which she started back in September last year, and is in partnership with the Grimsby Institute of Further Education.


Since starting her apprenticeship, Holly has been working within the sales department at Sylvester Keal alongside our sales administrator, Lisa, and has quickly built up a positive relationship with customers and colleagues whilst broadening her knowledge on the products we sell.


Taking place as part of the Apprenticeships Celebration 2019, the awards will take place on Friday, March 8th at The Theatre, within the Grimsby Institute with the awards starting at 2pm.


Martyn Keal, Managing Director at Sylvester Keal, said: “We believe it is important for Sylvester Keal as a business to help and support apprentices who are starting their careers in the catering equipment industry by providing them with the best opportunities we can give that will help them get their foot on the job ladder.


“Many young people find it difficult to gain work without valuable experience, however apprenticeships are a great way for individuals to earn a wage whilst learning on the job and gaining qualifications.


“Holly has worked exceptionally hard since starting her apprenticeship and we are all delighted with the progress she has made. She has learned such a lot in just a short space of time and has demonstrated initiative and dedication throughout the course.


“We would like to wish Holly congratulations on her nomination which she thoroughly deserves and a big well done to her and the rest of our apprentices who are currently completing courses with Sylvester Keal.”


Not only do apprenticeships benefit the individual undertaking them, they can also benefit the employer by bringing in the right skills businesses need in order to be successful and can help to regenerate the workplace.


We wish Holly the best of luck with her award nomination and with the rest of her apprenticeship - we’ll be keeping our fingers crossed!
