It's been a very successful year for Silentnight's Apprenticeship programme. We have been offering apprenticeships in engineering for over 10 years, but since 2011 have expanded to offer manufacturing, junior management, costings, customer services, supply chain management, logistics and mechanical HGV apprenticeships.
This November, we are thrilled to announce that we have four places on our Manufacturing Apprenticeship scheme, which allows apprentices to earn while they learn a skilled trade from a company with over 60 years experience in bed making, and receive a Level 2 qualification. There are some very happy faces in the factory at the moment, as today's The Sun newspaper has included a piece praising our scheme.
This year, we received a very special visitor when Prime Minister, David Cameron, popped in. He described us as a 'great business' and emphasised our successful apprenticeship scheme, as well as our investment in UK manufacture and product innovation, which was very lovely recognition indeed.
