We’re Supporting Young People into Work

It’s that time of year when the minds of those in education start to focus on the next step. As a major employer in the area we’re working in partnership with Dudley College of Technology to support its students and the wider schools community.

At the end of March, SSG attended the Dudley College Appathon, an initiative to promote digital and tech opportunities to young people, with a focus on diversity and equality. Then in early April we attended the College’s ‘MyFuture Careers Fair’. Designed for students of Dudley College and Dudley Sixth, the fair provided insight into career opportunities as diverse as joining the armed forces, working with 3D VR software for the gaming industry, training as an optician or motor bike mechanic, and of course ourselves offering rewarding careers in electrical and electronic engineering.

Jennifer Terry, SSG’s Marketing Manager, comments: “It was an exciting opportunity for companies such as ourselves to raise their profile with a view to attracting the best apprentices in future years, while helping to broaden the career aspirations of those considering their future.”

Supporting apprentices

SSG has worked for some time with Dudley College as our trainer provider, and they are this year helping us to fill two Electronic Engineering Technical Apprenticeship places which will be offered to 19 year olds who have already completed or will be completing this year a Level 3 Engineering Qualification, and wish to study further to achieve Level 4.

Supporting up-skilling and re-skilling in the technologies industries

SSG is also a strong supporter of the Black Country & Marches Institute of Technology (IoT), located in Dudley, having provided our bedhead trunking and nurse call equipment within one of the training suites which was opened in September 2021.

It is our intention to continue to work with local education providers and we have been invited to work with the college to help them achieve their digital strategy which outlines a committed to: Enhance and streamline their business processes to support business continuity, and ensure that their staff and learners are equipped to thrive and succeed in the 4th Industrial Revolution.
