Whilst many thriving companies in the engineering sector have used the recent difficult economic climate as an opportunity to trim their training expenditure, Peterhead based Score Group plc continue to challenge that popular trend by taking the opposite approach.

Maintaining their long track record of investing in their National Award Winning Apprenticeship Training Programme, the Score Group - now in its 30th trading year - has the largest apprentice training programme in Scotland, with over 250 Apprentices engaged in a wide variety of traditional and new apprenticeship disciplines, with a major focus on Mechanical Engineering.

All 27 new apprenticeship positions offered in Peterhead this Summer were filled by the end of July, as the company sustained its commitment to, and investment in, the local population. The Group continuously strives to provide opportunities for those who wish to invest in their own futures and intend to become part of the next generation of highly skilled engineers.

Speaking at a recent in-company apprentice lecture, Score Group plc Chairman Charles Ritchie - who’s vision and commitment has sustained the organisation’s growth and specifically driven its Apprenticeship Training Programme throughout the company’s long and distinguished history of investing in developing new young engineers – reaffirmed his commitment to the future of the programme and the youngsters engaging in it.

He said: “These young persons are our future workforce and every one has the potential to become a Manager or even a Director in one of our worldwide operational centres, so it is imperative that we help them succeed in their chosen field in every way we can. We wish them every success in their careers with us”.

Score Group plc are leaders in the provision of Intelligent Valve and Gas Turbine Solutions to the Offshore Oil & Gas, Subsea and Wellheads, Petrochemical, Energy and Marine Markets. They are currently recruiting for their January 2012 Apprentice intake.
