GC wins apprenticeship training provider award for the third year running

Whether it’s celebrating an award win or personal milestones, we are proud of every apprentice’s success.

Meet the trainer: Dianne Baker, Assessor Trainer in Apprenticeships at GC

“Apprentices learn with you and from you, as well as from their college trainer. So they are getting an excellent all round knowledge base as well as learning your own methods and practices. They appreciate the commitment you give them and you’ll appreciate the depth of skills and knowledge that they acquire. Apprentices can become your most loyal employees – supporting the business as it develops and becoming your next team leaders, trainers and managers.”

Meet the lecturer: Vincent Seow, Engineering Degree Lecturer at GC

"In our engineering degree courses, we tailor the skillset to meet business needs relevant to our employer partners. Your apprentices will be working in the knowledge that at the end of their apprenticeship they will have a qualification that is tremendously valuable to them individually and to you as an employer."
