10 March 2017 – Alison Thewliss MP for Glasgow Central visited AECOM’s Glasgow Bothwell Street office yesterday to meet apprentices and graduates as part of Scottish Apprenticeship Week.
During the visit to AECOM’s office, Alison met with apprentices and graduates working on live projects. One of the apprentices Alison met was Kirsty Walker, who has been shadowing AECOM Director Andy Barker this week as part of AECOM’s Scottish Apprenticeship Week activities. Alison also heard from AECOM directors Kenneth O’Hara and Ciaran Camplisson about local projects the company is involved with. AECOM has around 470 staff in Glasgow.
Craig Little, Head of Consulting, Buildings & Places Scotland, AECOM, said: “We are delighted to be able to host Alison and show her a number of projects we have been working on locally, nationally and globally. AECOM has a proud record of employing apprentices and graduates and Alison was pleased to be able to meet and discuss some of their experiences while she was in our office.”
Scottish Apprenticeship Week 2017, 6th March – 10th March, celebrates the benefits apprenticeships bring to individual businesses and to the Scottish economy. Organised by Skills Development Scotland (SDS), the nationwide campaign aims to encourage more employers to take on apprentices by showing how apprenticeships work for businesses and for the people who become apprentices.
