Mechanical and electrical services specialist J S Wright has been honoured with a regional award for its apprentice training.
The company, which is based in Birmingham and has an office in London, was named Best Medium Employer at the Greater Birmingham Apprenticeship Awards 2021, held at Edgbaston cricket stadium.
J S Wright was chosen due to the success of its academy which, since its launch in 2008, has taken on 55 apprentices on a range of craft and technical courses in which learning skills are also nurtured by existing employees.
The judging panel was impressed with how the apprentices are given a complete understanding of the business and full support through on-site experience and individual mentoring – an approach that has seen no less than 33 of those 55 apprentices still with the company.
The awards were run by BirminghamLive in partnership with the Ladder for Greater Birmingham campaign.
