Six new Modern Apprentices started their Forth Valley College journey on the first day of Scottish Apprenticeship Week 2018.
The SP Energy Networks apprentice cable jointers started on Monday 5 March at the FVC Falkirk Campus where they will spend the first six months of their MA, before moving on to technical training and then into their individual work locations.

ScottishPower is a supporter of Scottish Apprenticeship Week, Muir McDonald, Head of Resourcing at ScottishPower, said: “Scottish Apprenticeship week is a great time to celebrate ScottishPower’s commitment to apprentices and communicate this proudly. Since 2011 SP Energy Networks have recruited 263 apprentices and 96% of those apprentices completed their qualifications and many are still working for the business today.”
Graham Corr, Training Manager, SP Energy Networks, said: “SP Energy Networks are delighted to welcome our new intake of Modern Apprentices to the business. These individuals are the future of our workforce and we are delighted that our continued partnership with Forth Valley College is the first step in their journey as apprentice cable jointers.
“As we strive towards building a workforce which provides excellent customer service within a safe working environment. It is especially welcoming at the start of Scottish Apprenticeship Week as we continue to employ people from the local areas for which we are the distribution and transmission network operator.”
Frances Tasker, FVC Business Development Partner, said: “FVC are delighted to welcome another intake of Modern Apprentices from SP Energy Networks, to Falkirk Campus to start their learning journey. This group will take the total number SP Energy Networks apprentices who have started the Power Distribution Apprenticeship with us to 114 since 2013. This is an outstanding commitment and investment by one organisation.
“It was a real pleasure to meet the new apprentices when they started. This is an exciting experience for them as they start their future careers and FVC are very proud to work with these candidates and SP Energy Networks. Having a workforce ready to meet the demands of the future is so important to this organisation and they see these apprentices as the future of their business delivery and a valuable asset to the company. We look forward to further strengthening our relationship with SP Energy Networks over the coming years.”
