Here at Pennine, we are proud to work with our community and have the platform to provide opportunities to our local young people, therefore, we are thrilled to be celebrating National Apprenticeship Week!

Over the last few years, we have had 4 apprentices on-site, with one qualifying recently with a Distinction grade, and gaining their full time position within the Pennine team.

Our other three apprentices are still with us, completing their studies, gaining valuable work experience, all whilst earning a competitive salary.
