On Wednesday 8 September we were delighted to welcome five new apprentices to our Appledore site!

The apprenticeship scheme will run in line and with partnership from Petroc College and will see apprentices range from 16 – 38 years old, with a mixture of genders.

Running from 9am – 4pm, our induction day gave the newest recruits a chance to tour the site as well as learn more about our heritage and significance within national and international maritime sectors.

Tom Hart, General Manager at Harland & Wolff (Appledore) commented: “We are delighted to welcome our new apprentices to both our Appledore site and to the Harland & Wolff Group – they are the future of this shipyard which is steeped in rich history. We are excited to teach and develop them – passing on British shipbuilding skills to the next generation. As we develop and grow as a business, we now look forward to welcoming apprentices year on year which will further enrich not only the yard but both local and national communities.”
