Earlier this week CIA attended a careers evening at Cirencester Deer Park School. The evening provided us with the opportunity to promote the benefits of apprenticeships and our apprenticeship programme.

The event was a great success and we enjoyed talking to students who were interested in becoming apprentices after they finish school.

CIA has a longstanding tradition of employing apprentices and has been taking on engineering apprentices since 2000. We expanded our apprenticeship programme to include Business Administration Apprentices in 2012.

Managing Director, Colin Harrison, began his career as an apprentice and is now running our extremely successful company.

Colin said: “Apprenticeships benefit our company by instilling the basic skills required in our staff, ensuring that their confidence grows at the same rate as their abilities. They provide essential support to qualified staff by carrying out basic tasks.

“We enjoy watching our apprentices grow from inexperienced enthusiasm to confident young people in a relatively short space of time.”
