Apprenticeship award for Pendennis


Pendennis Shipyard has been named Apprentice Employer of the Year at the FE Week and AELP AAC Apprenticeship Awards.

The Falmouth-based business received the accolade in the small employer category.

Joint MD, Toby Allies, said: “The national award recognises organisations with an outstanding commitment to apprentices and apprenticeships, so we are honoured to have been selected – it’s a fantastic reward for all of our staff, whose dedication and passion makes our apprenticeships what they are.

“Our strongest asset is our team, and with a healthy forward order book we’re currently actively recruiting across all trades, to expand our workforce and keep up with increasing client demand for superyacht services in Falmouth.”

The award win coincided with Pendennis welcoming 14 new apprentices to its General Engineering Apprenticeship scheme in the first week of July.
