Don-Bur and NSEG Develop Apprenticeship Scheme


Working together with NSEG Training Association, Don-Bur will be taking on 15 engineering apprentices in 2021 as part of a long-term commitment to develop and retain critical skills at the large commercial trailer manufacturing plant in Stoke-on-Trent.

The successful firm has already adopted 8 hand-picked apprentices this year who demonstrated the willingness and potential to grow within the business but Don-Bur is keen to take this further.

Apprenticeships, from initial training up to and including Technician level 3 and Graduate level 4 schemes, are vitally important to offer career stability and planned, structured growth for a wide variety of individuals seeking self-improvement.  The schemes provide a valuable platform to provide a long-term partnership which will benefit both Don-Bur and apprentices alike.

Paul Williams, leader at NSEG agrees. “As a prime provider to Don-Bur, we pride ourselves on our abilities to tailor individual learning plans, highlight opportunities and support the apprentices throughout the scheme.”

Apprentices completing each level will acquire a recognised qualification as well as having developed valued skills which will generate greater career prospects and remain with them throughout their working life.
