A hi-tech engineering company from Bridgend, which is developing its own young talent to tackle the engineering skills gap, is in contention to win a major award at the Apprenticeship Awards Cymru 2015.

Nemein Ltd is one of three finalists in the Small Employer of the Year category at the high profile awards ceremony to be held at the Celtic Manor Resort, Newport on Thursday, October 29.

The coveted awards celebrate the outstanding achievements of those who have exceeded expectations, shown a dynamic approach to training and demonstrated initiative, enterprise, innovation, creativity and commitment to the improvement of skills development for the Welsh economy.

Jointly organised by the Welsh Government and the National Training Federation for Wales (NTfW), the awards are sponsored by Pearson PLC and media partner is Media Wales. The Apprenticeship Programme, led by the Welsh Government, is supported by the European Social Fund.

Nemein Ltd works predominantly in the energy and robotics sectors. Its chief executive, Suzannah Bourne, explained:

“We need a very specific skills set not readily available locally so investing in training is essential for us to grow.

“The Apprenticeship programme works very well for us; all our recruits gain confidence and motivation. Our first Engineering Technician Apprentice now works full-time for us; we’ve taken on another Mechanical Manufacturing Apprentice and we’re recruiting for another two.”

Apprenticeships are delivered in partnership with Acorn Learning Solutions, through mentoring, coaching and daily support in theory and hands-on practical skills.
