Dovecote Park receive award for apprenticeship scheme

We were delighted to see our Apprenticeship scheme recognized at the East Riding College internal awards in Beverley on March 20th. 
    We are extremely proud to report that our Apprenticeship scheme has received the Training Champion award from East Riding College as part of their annual internal awards programme.   The award ceremony took place on 20th March at the parkway cinema in Beverley.

Dovecote Park
were represented at the ceremony by Penny Marlow, Human Resources Manager, Dave Stringer, Apprencite Trainer and Damien McKnight, Primary Process Training Officer. Dave Stringer (pictured) accepted the award on behalf of Dovecote Park.

The citation for the award stated; ‘Over the past 2 years Dovecote Park have been working with East Riding College to recruit Young people onto their apprenticeship programme. During this time they have provided learners with excellent on and off the job training, including additional in house and external qualifications alongside their apprenticeship.  

Dovecotes social commitment to the young people is outstanding and the investment of both time and money to support these individuals outside of their working day has been exemplary.
Dovecotes have also retained the majority of the individuals appointed to the apprenticeship programme and provided career opportunities and progression routes within the organization upon completion of their apprenticeship.   This dedication to developing employees for the benefit of the business and the individual is the reason why we would like to recognize Dovecote Park this evening.’  

We are delighted to see the scheme recognised, and would like to congratulate Dave, Damien and the production staff for their efforts in incorporating the apprentices into our business, and also to congratulate the apprentices whom we have worked with for their hard work – we look forward to seeing the continued success of this scheme!
