With the government pushing for more options for young people leaving full-time education, apprenticeships have recently been put back in the spotlight.

Apprenticeships offer qualifications and the chance to learn on the job and celebration of apprenticeships is taking place up and down the UK this week, marking the UK’s annual National Apprenticeships Week (6-10 March).

Stannah has been a champion of apprenticeships for a long time, some of its longest-standing employees first joined the business as apprentices. Back in the 1800s, Joseph Stannah regularly campaigned for apprenticeships, often expressing the importance of apprentices to the company.

Apprenticeships at Stannah are diverse, from being part of a marketing, business or manufacturing team, to working in our engineering teams out in the field, giving apprentices a wide range of opportunities to grow and nurture their skills, as well as qualifications.

Sophie Healy for example, followed her passion for engineering and started a Stannah apprenticeship in St. Albans. As part of the lift engineering team, Sophie works on maintaining, repairing and servicing lifts.
