We Made It!!
We are ecstatic to announce that Cloudy Group is a finalist in the 2018 Buckinghamshire Business First Awards in the Apprentice and Young Person Employer of the Year category. To be considered alongside so many other great businesses is a huge achievement for us. With so many entries we’re so happy that we were chosen as a finalist. We’re thrilled that all our work to invest in young people has been recognised.
We’d like to thank our apprentices for all their hard work and embracing the experience of growing and learning– we couldn’t be Cloudy Group without you. The winner will be announced on Tuesday 22nd May 2018, so fingers crossed for the result!
Director David Hall can’t quite believe it: “I’m so pleased that Cloudy Group is a finalist in this year’s Buckinghamshire Business First Awards. I know there were hundreds of applications and the quality of the other finalists is so high that to be included as part of this group is very flattering. I started my career in IT as an apprentice and I am proof that giving enthusiastic young people the opportunity to learn in a focused and positive environment really does pay dividends”
Apprenticeships at Cloudy Group allow young people to learn in a real work environment, giving them the opportunity to gain the essential experience they need to start their professional career. Training received takes place on the job, and our apprentices do site visits to our clients alongside our trained technical support engineers, so they learn in the same environment as they’re working.
We believe passionately that apprenticeships are the way forward for many industries, and we are doing our best at Cloudy Group to ensure that there is always a place here for young, eager people to hone their skills for the bright career that lies ahead of them. This award is a brilliant way to highlight the companies that are making a difference through apprenticeship schemes.
It is going to be a nervous wait to see whether or not we win this award, but until then you can always read about our Cloudy Academy, that works to help young people realise their true potential, and also how one of our current apprentices Denis, is getting along with his training, and discover why we are just so different from everyone else out there.
