Smiths in the Community
We believe that working with and developing talent in the local community is not a nice to have but a necessity in securing the future of our industry
Smiths offer secondary school A-Level students at Harlow UTC the opportunity to gain real life experience and engineering knowledge with The Smiths Apprentice Scheme.
The scheme is a year long placement that will gain the apprentice the equivalent of an A-Level qualification. Not only this but apprentices are often employed full time after their year with us.
I’ve been on the 3 year scheme for a year now and developed a number of skills, but for me it’s really been about building confidence…the guys around me in the workshop are really committed to helping me progress and when I look back and see how much I’ve learned and the responsibility I’ve taken on, that builds confidence in me.
