Pegler Yorkshire has launched a campaign to support a number of initiatives throughout Doncaster and the UK to encourage awareness of career opportunities, inspire children to consider technical based GCSE’s, or give young adults the confidence to choose vocational courses and apprenticeships.

The Pegler Yorkshire team will take part in the national ‘Teen Tech’ challenge, employability days in conjunction with Doncaster Metropolitan Borough Council, a programme of community engagement with 10 and 11-year-olds, and will sponsor a high-achieving student at a Doncaster secondary school.

“It is very important to us that we address the skills shortage and highlight the multitude of careers that a company such as ours can offer,” said Phill Jackson, business development and marketing director at Pegler Yorkshire.

Pegler Yorkshire currently supports the apprenticeship scheme across a number of platforms and actively encourages ongoing training, not just of its own staff but skilled industry professionals. Its training centre, which received CIPHE accreditation in 2016, complements the company’s online training portal for Continuous Professional Development and a range of comprehensive videos are provided to support online learning.
