We have developed a strong working relationship with Preston’s College to support the learning and development of our employees. At the moment, our learners are Managers undertaking a programme of Management Development, but we have been impressed with the structure and support the College has given both to ADI as an employer and to our employees. As we progress into 2017 we are considering the wider use of apprenticeships across the business, and would hope to continue to widen our partnership with the College. We believe they could significantly contribute to the increase in skills development across our workforce, and are impressed with the breadth of apprenticeships offered. Feedback from all of our learners about the quality of teaching to date has been very positive and they are thoroughly enjoying the courses attended, and are finding that they can apply their knowledge practically within the workplace.
