A&P Group has again demonstrated its commitment to developing a skilled workforce by recruiting a total of 20 new apprentices – ten at its Tyne facility and a further ten at A&P Falmouth.

The new intake of apprentices includes two Health and Safety Apprentices – Rebecca Kitts at Falmouth and Anthony Innes at Tyne – who are among the first two HSE apprentices in the country.

The other new apprentices are training to be engineers, electricians, welders, platers with another training in procurement & supply.

David McGinley, Managing Director Atlantic and Peninsula Marine Services Ltd, said: “Our management team is committed to building a sustainable future for A&P and our apprentices will play a significant role in developing our business in the future. We will strive to provide the best training possible to the next generation of apprentices.

“At A&P we want our apprentices to grow in stature, learn from our current employees and build their lives upon a good work ethic that promotes a good team ethos. This is what this industry is all about.” “The development of highly skilled trades persons has been a major contributor to obtaining the high level of credibility A&P has within the ship repair industry.”
