Built to Last: Apprenticeships

In these blogs, we often talk about Built to Last as a philosophy, an engineering achievement, or even a manufacturing process. But, behind each of these examples are dedicated, brilliant teams of people bringing the principles of Built to Last to life in every aspect of the company through hard work, dedication and innovation.

As a result, we believe that our company can only be as great as the people it employs. Just as we pride ourselves on our products and services being of outstanding quality, reliable and built for longevity, we aim to build relationships with our employees on the same principles. We’ve found that one of the key building blocks in creating working relationships that are ‘Built to Last’ is cultivating a strong apprenticeship programme that fosters loyalty, ambition and talent in those who sign up.

A year earlier, ‘Science magazine’ observed that “the most valuable spin off [of the space programme] would be human rather than technological…” It proved true, project Apollo was a triumph in human endeavour, drive and ingenuity.

45 years on, and the Bloodhound SSC project team – which includes some of the world’s most revered engineers – are building a car designed to go faster than the speed of sound. Bloodhound has carried out a series of ground-breaking tests and research, including the firing of the largest rocket in Britain in the last 25 years. With the project rapidly gaining momentum, this has now become an iconic global engineering adventure, showcasing innovative technology and manufacturing.
