Swift Group is delighted to win Hull’s Youth Enterprise award for promoting an enterprise culture with young people in the region.
The award recognises the investment that Swift Group has made in: partnerships with local schools and colleges to support children and young adults in developing core employability skills; initiatives to increase the number of women in engineering and manufacturing; and operating one of the largest manufacturing apprenticeship schemes in the region employing 8 to 10 apprentices every year.
Swift Group also provides alternatives routes to employment for young people including an engineering scholarship programme. The fully funded programme is open to students with ‘A’ levels or equivalent qualifications, and enables them to study part-time for an engineering degree whilst working at Swift.
“I would like to congratulate all the winners” said a delighted Amy Archer, Deputy Managing Director. “Supporting our local community and in particular helping young people succeed in the world of work, is a key commitment of Swift Group. Many of the Swift team have worked extremely hard with a number of local education providers and it is great to see that effort rewarded, well done everyone”.
