HOW WARRIOR DOORS IS HELPING YOUNG PEOPLE TO A MORE SECURE FUTURE
WARRIOR DOORS is kickstarting the careers of young people in the manufacturing and engineering sector by backing the nationwide apprenticeship scheme.
WARRIOR DOORS makes a commitment to long-term support – that’s written into our product portfolio. It’s there in our ten-year warranties and our relationship with our customers. As a family-owned and family-run British business we want to be able to offer real jobs and to back the local workforce and the wider UK economy whenever we can.
Today, the most effective route to start young people onto the shop floor is the modern nationwide apprenticeship programme. In a previous post, eighteen-year-old apprentice LEE RUDD outlined his experiences training on coding and information’s systems at WARRIOR, while working towards his Grade 4 NVQ. Lee has now been joined by a second apprentice; 19 old ADAM MANN.
Adam started work in WARRIOR’s in-house communications team in June 2017, helping ensure that all the information our existing clients and potential customers receive is accurate, on-time and appropriate. As a market leader in security doors, WARRIOR offers a broad range of products with an extensive menu of bespoke options. By helping ensure our online print media are accurate and up-to-date, Adam is helping us make sure that every customer can easily find the solution that meets their specific needs, and get the right specification every time.
At WARRIOR DOORS we are keen to see apprenticeship journeys end in success; over two million young people started out on their apprenticeships this year. For WARRIOR that means ensuring that our apprentices come to us from exceptional training providers with a strong record of accomplishment of NVQ and vocational success. With an experienced organisation collaborating us in supporting apprentices on-site and training them off-site, we are better able to help young people succeed.
WARRIOR’s training partner in Adam’s apprenticeship is CREATIVE ALLIANCE, the largest provider of creative apprenticeships in the region. They can deliver the quality coaching, mentoring, seminars and research that reinforce what Adam is learning at WARRIOR. Adam says; “I’m delighted to be at WARRIOR. This is a thirteen-month apprenticeship, but hopefully I’ll carry on for years after I qualify! I’m excited about being part of a team that makes something unique, like WARRIOR does. I’m working on large-scale campaigns, and because I’m skilled on the Adobe software packages, WARRIOR can get more done in-house that’s true to their vision”.
