PHD’s Apprenticeship Scheme reached finalist stage for CN Talent Awards 2019

PHD are pleased to have reached the finalist stage for the Apprenticeship Initiative of the Year category at the CN Talent Awards 2019. We were up against fierce competition, including, Knights Brown, MACE, and Network Rail but ultimately City Building came out on top. PHD entered the Apprenticeship Initiative of the Year category after a successful year actively promoting and adapting the scheme to be better and more worthwhile for the apprentices. PHD created a new Apprenticeship Coordinator role, so each apprentice had a dedicated person to communicate with.
