Bell Group Apprenticeship Scheme

We would like to thank all contributers to our 2013 recruitment drive for apprentices, as a result we employed 39 new starts at trade level and a further 5 in office based roles. 45 of our existing apprentices graduated this year taking our total number of current apprentices to 179. 

We think its more important than ever to invest time in our craftsmen. Bell Group have a commitment to traditional values of time served tradesmen, apprenticeship schemes and skills learned over years, not weeks.
