MP Celebrates Local Apprenticeship Success


Nigel Adams met Apprentices last week when he visited Selby shop fitting company Direct Interior Solutions as part of the National Apprenticeship Week celebrations.

Andy Addison , Manager  said, “We started small when we first started trading but have grown rapidly  as our customer base expanded,  going from supplying our products locally to now operating across the country. Andy added, “To meet customer demand for our products, we needed to grow the business and we achieved this by participating in the Government’s Apprenticeship programme; working with top-performing Apprenticeship provider, Selby College.

Andy added, “The Apprenticeship programme is a win-win situation both for the employer and the Apprentice. We get access to motivated and capable future employees who can be trained to meet our exact requirements and the young person is able to gain valuable work experience and knowledge whilst working towards their qualifications.”

Nigel Adams MP said “It’s good to see another successful business benefitting by participating in the national Apprenticeship programme. Nigel added, “Apprenticeships make a vital contribution to the economy and the programme delivered locally by top-performing Selby College is designed to give young people the skills they need to get on in life, gaining a trade and the motivation to build a successful future for themselves.”
