Shepley Engineers Ltd commits to the next generation by joining The 5% Club

Shepley Engineers Ltd commits to the next generation by joining The 5% Club

Shepley Engineers Ltd, [A multi discipline engineering company with headquarters at Whitehaven, Cumbria] has showcased its commitment to the next generation by joining The 5% Club, an industry led initiative focussed on driving momentum into the recruitment of apprentices, graduates and sponsored students.Read More

The campaign was initiated by defence technology company QinetiQ with an aim to get the UK’s public and private companies to commit to raising the number of apprentices, sponsored students and graduates on formal programmes to 5% of their total workforce within five years.

The aim of the campaign is to tackle both the chronic skills shortage and youth unemployment in Britain and help the country remain at the forefront of innovation. It also asks members to publicly report their progress in their Annual Report.

Shepley Engineers Ltd are committed to training and development, and have been investing in their employees’ development, and specifically apprenticeships for many years. They have a good mix of apprenticeships covering pipe fitting, welding, plating, erectors, and electrical disciplines. In 2014 they also introduced the Project Controls apprenticeship to meet an increasing need. In addition to this they also have various trainees and a Graduate Engineer, and run an “Improvers” scheme for people who have previously worked in unskilled or Semi-skilled positions, and are now being upskilled to full tradesman status.

Nick Houghton Managing Director of Shepley Engineers says “We are more than happy to become members of The 5% Club as we have been investing in apprentices and the training and development of our staff for many years. We recognise that the best way for us to build and develop our workforce is through providing these opportunities. We also like to develop our engineers through this route, giving apprentices who demonstrate the necessary ability and drive, the opportunity to further their education and move into trainee engineer roles when they complete their apprenticeships. We feel that this gives us a strong Project Engineer and Manager capability, based on not just education but practical skills and delivery experience. Our commitment and support of this approach is backed up and clearly demonstrable by the fact that our Chairman, MD and most of our board of directors and senior managers are from apprentice backgrounds, showing apprentices that it really is possible for them to end up running the company!

Dr Sam Healy, Programme Director of The 5% Club said, “We’re delighted to welcome Shepley Engineers Ltd to the initiative. The company’s existing efforts to invest in the next generation are greatly welcomed and together we can strive towards a brighter future for young people in Britain.”

Shepley Engineers currently has:

34 apprentices, (31 across various trades, 3 in Project Controls)
9 trainee engineers.
1 trainee estimator
1 graduate at Coventry University.

By signing up to The 5% Club they have committed to work towards maintaining at least 5% of their workforce on apprenticeships or graduate training programmes over the next few years. Currently they are at 5.8% and their aim is to stay above the 5% target in the future, which is of course dependant on contracts and forward load.
