Sepura is delighted to announce that it has received the Employer of the Year award by Cambridge Regional College ("CRC") within their Faculty of Construction and Engineering. The official award ceremony took place at CRC's premises on 25th June.

This follows the launch earlier this year of Sepura's Apprenticeship Programme, developed in conjunction with CRC and designed to help develop talent for the future. The Sepura Apprenticeship Programme focuses on training apprentice engineers in a variety of roles within its product development function. There was strong competition for the award, which was open to both the companies taking part in apprenticeship schemes and all of the organisations connected to CRC. At present, CRC's Faculty of Construction and Engineering cooperates with over one hundred companies, making this award even more prestigious and remarkable.

CRC explains that the employer of the year award is presented to the company that, in their view, has contributed outstandingly towards the development of their apprentices.

Paul Warmington, Work Based Learning Programme Manager for Engineering at CRC comments: "Sepura is an exciting, innovative and forward thinking technology company, who have taken their entry into providing apprenticeships very seriously. They have demonstrated a strong commitment to provide opportunities for local people, not only through their apprentice intake, but through their on-going support for local STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) activities. Their apprentices are involved in a diverse range of disciplines throughout the company and are offered some fantastic learning opportunities with real career progression."

Gordon Watling, CEO for Sepura, said: "This award acknowledges Sepura's commitment to invest both in the growth of the business as a whole and also in the people that it needs to help secure that growth. We are confident that our new engineers will make as valuable a contribution to our future success as the highly skilled and experienced engineers who will be coaching them through the important early stages of their careers".
