Robert Largan MP meets apprentices at Hope Cement Works

We welcomed Robert Largan, MP for High Peak to site last month to meet with some of our apprentices. 

Proud of our well-established engineering apprenticeships that include 45 of our full-time employees who have come through the apprenticeship scheme and recognised by two of the biggest engineering institutes in the UK:- The Institution of Mechanical Engineers and the Institution of Engineering and Technology. 

John Mulryan, Maintenance Manager at Hope, himself  a former apprentice, is proud of the site’s achievements and said “It is such a privilege to be able to build a team here with all the right technical skills and the passion to really make a difference, along with opportunities to learn so many transferable engineering and life skills that will help them in the future.”

Hope Works apprentices Jake Saxon and Daniel Hobson, who have both recently qualified, are pictured receiving their certificates in Advanced Modern Apprenticeship from Robert Largan MP – Jake in Mechanical Engineering and Daniel in Electrical Engineering.

We are working with Robert Lagan’s office, local businesses and education providers to ensure that every young person in High Peak is able to access the full range of opportunities available to them within the local area and every employer is able to attract, prepare and support future apprentices.

Knowing the key contacts at each school or college will enable local employers to enjoy effective communications in a fast-paced environment.

This might also provide an opportunity to organise career-oriented field trips.
