Wallington based recruitment firm in running for top education award

TEC Group International based in Wallington, Surrey has been named a finalist in the National Apprenticeship Awards and is now in the running to be named the Rentokil Initial Small Employer of the Year.

The Awards, run by the National Apprenticeship Service, recognise excellence in businesses that employ apprentices, with the overall winners announced at The Skills Show at the NEC in Birmingham on 14th November.

TEC Group is a recruitment staffing business to the global oil and gas engineering sector. The company started its Apprenticeship programme a year ago and currently has nine apprentices as part of its 25-strong work force.  It was selected for the finals due to its successful implementation of Apprenticeships to help grow the business and to create new jobs for young people bringing a youthful and dynamic feel to the company.

On hearing that the organisation was in the running for the top prize in the category, James Harding, Managing Director, said: “We are proud of our Apprenticeship programme and it’s satisfying that TEC Group has created new employment in our community and the economy.  However, the scheme is first and foremost a mechanism to grow the business profitably and we have managed to do that.  It has also provided excellent career development for our existing employees some of whom are now managing newly established teams that have evolved.  Apprenticeships have given the company a youthful feel, strong growth and an excellent return on our investment”

David Way, Chief Executive of the National Apprenticeship Service, congratulated TEC Group International on its success: “Only those employers which can demonstrate they have put Apprenticeships right at the heart of their organisation make it through to this stage of the Awards. The judges were hugely impressed by TEC’s commitment to encouraging ambition and enterprise and they are worthy finalists.

“London should be justifiably proud of TEC’s achievements and the employment opportunities they are providing to young people in the local area.  We are now calling on other employers across the region to pick up the gauntlet and recognise the benefits to their organisation of employing an apprentice.”
