As with many businesses in Oxfordshire, Integration Technology struggle to recruit staff with the right skills. Over 10 years ago we implemented a strong internal vocational training programme to both better train recruits into the business and to up-skill existing staff, to meet the needs of an ever changing world. Integration Technology have been a long-time supporter not only of the Oxfordshire Apprenticeships Awards but of Apprenticeships in general. We have always looked at Apprenticeships as a means of recruitment and have rolled out various programmes over the years. Our CEO Adrian Lockwood is a former Apprentice and very proud to be one. He is also Chair of the Oxfordshire Skills Board and so passionate about supporting young people to start a successful career and also encouraging local businesses to see how Apprenticeships can help them meet their skills requirements. The Shining Star Award and its criteria fits the ethos Integration Technology promotes around Apprenticeships. The awards will be held at the Jurys Inn Oxford on Thursday 4th April 2019.
