Thames Water set to launch apprenticeship collaboration with its supply chain

Thames Water is poised, in collaboration with its supply chain, to launch a shared apprenticeship scheme, that will “increase the number of apprentices employed within the water industry and the diversity of its workforce.”

The shared apprenticeship scheme, according to Thames, will offer “people in London and the Thames Valley, with an interest in working in the water sector, the chance to learn and get involved in the company’s infrastructure projects while gaining a nationally recognised qualification.” Thames Water will be working with Lanes, Clancy, MWH and Morrison.

Lynne Graham, Thames Water People Director said: “We want to contribute to the creation of a fair society and tackle real challenges, such as digital skill shortages and in-work poverty, and ensure our people receive the right investment in skills development to have successful and sustainable careers.”

The first group of 20 apprentices on the scheme will, according to Thames, be in place by March 2022. Thames Water is working with apprenticeship training agency, K10, to deliver the apprenticeships and apprentices will be hosted onsite by various employers for a minimum of six months at a time.
