Welcome to the Gas group academy

Following our amazing success in being named on the Centrica Top 100 Apprenticeship Employers in the UK list for our apprenticeship scheme, we decided to build on our achievement by launching the GAS Group Academy.

This dedicated, bespoke training environment has been set up to develop and nurture young people from the region and launch them into a phenomenal career in sales.

The first stage of this exciting programme commenced in Summer 2017, with an intake of 11 new sales apprentices.  Further cohorts are planned in 2018.

The Qualification

Our Academy will be a new division, committed to creating a training scheme totally unique to our industry. The Academy will be able to offer rising stars of the future an opportunity to set themselves on a path with unrivalled possibilities. To compliment the practical element of the role, each apprentice will commence a two year programme, achieving an Intermediate (Level 2) Apprenticeship in Sales and Telesales in their first year, progressing to a Level 3 qualification in their second year.

Our Current Apprentices

Rachel

Apprenticeships are a vital option for young people. I feel that my apprenticeship gives me more freedom to develop as a professional than I’d get at University or in a regular full-time role.

I’m still working towards a qualification, but feel immersed in the world of work, too. I’m working in the world of Marketing and Communications, which usually requires years of study, so I’m soaking up as much as I can to turn this opportunity into a career.

 

Ethan

I used to be apprehensive about the idea of working in an office. I expected it to be stressful, draining and ultimately boring. However, when I started working for GAS I was proved wrong on all accounts and by the end of my first day I was eager for another day at work. I still look forward to coming in every day.

I expected the tasks no one wanted, but I have been given more responsibility than most other schemes would dream of and I’m given the guidance to achieve what I need to.

Our Awards

The Group has had a thrilling few months following a submission to The National Apprenticeship Awards which celebrate the best Apprentice Schemes in the UK. GAS was advised to enter by partner Talent Training (UK) LLP after an incredibly successful first 12 months and a second intake of young Apprentices in October 2016. The Group was delighted to win the ‘Best Newcomer SME’ category for the North East in October 2016, which resulted in automatic entry into the national judging stage.

As a finalist at the National Apprenticeship Awards, which took place in January 2017 at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London, the Group was elated to be given an honourable mention. This included being named as one of the UK’s best 100 apprenticeship providers, alongside household names such as Sage, Mercedes-Benz and Lloyds Bank.

The Centrica Top 100 Apprenticeship Employers list is compiled annually by the National Apprenticeship Service and recognises excellence in businesses that employ apprentices.

Judith Bennison, Group HR Director, said: “This is a huge achievement for the Group. We’re extremely proud of the scheme we’ve put together and to have been given honourable mention and a spot in the Centrica Top 100 reaffirms this. We’ve brought some recognition to some of the excellent business practice in the North East. I’m sure there are others thinking of starting an apprenticeship scheme and I’d whole-heartedly recommend they do. We’ve gained so many fresh ideas, perspectives and memorable moments from our apprentices – it’s been a huge success for us.’
