West Herts College Employer Excellence Award
Today ENGIE has won an Employer Excellence Award for the training and apprenticeship scheme in Watford. The ceremony was held at the West Herts College campus where the majority of the training has been carried out.
Over the past two years ENGIE has been carrying out a community impact plan where we have worked with Watford Community Housing and West Herts College to provide free pre-employment training to residents and students alike to improve economic stability in the local area.
Over the past year there have been two six week placements for six students in total, where they could get some hands-on experience in the construction industry. The student’s bespoke plan paired them closely with the site managers and resident liaison officers meaning they got the experience on and outside of the site, and importantly how the wider teams working on the project ensure the local residents benefit from the schemes.
