Delkia’s Success in Apprenticeships from A to P National Apprenticeship Week 5-9 February 2024
Delkia is launching five short videos, one each day during National Apprenticeship Week, 5-9 February 2024, to celebrate the contribution of apprenticeships in roles as varied as business administration, marketing, HR, electrical & electronic engineering, and project management – from A to P.
Delkia supports apprenticeships to build skills and develop the leaders of the future. In the last year 2 people have successfully completed apprenticeships at Delkia, with a further 3 degree level apprentices in place, all learning the skills they need for life.
‘Delkia is dedicated to offering opportunities to young people in to join a fast-growing technology company and build the skills they need for their future careers and life. In the last year we have had two people successfully complete their apprenticeships who have gone on to start permanent employment with Delkia and have three degree level apprentices making a massive contribution in their roles in engineering, project management and marketing. This is just part of our commitment to supporting STEM careers and continuing to grow Delkia as the company goes from success to success.’

I have cultivated problem solving abilities, prioritisation, and a strong work ethic.
