DWS Apprenticeship Scheme

The DWS Apprenticeship Scheme


The DWS Apprentices

DWS is proud of its Apprenticeship Scheme, which has now been running since 2010. The scheme provides vocational training to equip young people with the skills required for them to become the best, most committed employees. The scheme creates a continuous channel of education, on-the-job-training and career progression potential for young people between the ages of 16 – 21.

The Modern Apprenticeship Scheme that we run can last between one and six years, depending on the level. Our apprentices work with experienced members of staff to develop job-specific skills, as well as studying for their BTec Level 3 and NVQ qualifications at local colleges.

Six apprentices have now qualified and are employed by DWS in a full-time capacity. Five apprentices will be continuing their studies to BTec Level 7 (Higher National Certificate) at Bradford College.
