George Leslie recognises the benefits of combining work-based learning with academic study in parallel under the GA programme and the meaningful value which is attached to the apprentices’ experience gained in the work place. The University’s GA programme is an ideal way for us to develop our talent. The company looks forward to continuing to work with UWS on the GA programme to provide the best tailored training for the industry in the years ahead.
John McNaught, recently retired MD of George Leslie, who continues to be engaged with the GA mentoring programme
Our UWS Graduate Apprentices go straight into the workplace from day one and are embedded into the business early, interacting with teams and getting hands on experience of the agile software development process. Graduate Apprenticeships provide a number of benefits, the main one is the ability for us to develop our apprentices in a way that is unique to our business.
