At Sertec we take our corporate and social responsibilities extremely seriously and we firmly believe that our involvement with the local community and our attitude towards responsible business practice is one of the many reasons why people want to work for us, and work with us.
Sertec have been working in partnership with Coleshill School to actively promote apprenticeships and support a number of opportunities for their students, including work experience placements, career-related events and mock interviews. Through building key relationships with local schools in the community we have been building awareness of the value in apprenticeship schemes and, by doing so, this greatly supports us in finding the engineers for our future.
We have now officially opened the ‘Sertec Suite’ which houses 32 new computers, the new facility will provide hi-tech education to the academy’s 1,000 plus students, as well as pupils at neighbouring primary schools.
The EEF have been a great support to Sertec, over many years, in the recruitment, training and development of our engineering apprentices. From their state-of-the-art technology centre, they provide hands-on training in a variety of technical areas, to provide our apprentices with the skills they need to work with the processes and technology we use. By doing so we are bringing on board talented individuals who are vital to the future success of our business.
