Apprenticeships at MIE

Celebrating Another Successful Apprenticeship at MIE Solutions.
Congratulations to Paul Merricks, Technical Support Engineer at MIE Solutions who has successfully completed his Advanced IT Apprenticeship with outstanding achievement and progress.
Over the course of his apprenticeship Paul has become a key member of the team performing at a consistently high level. Of particular note is Paul’s initiative, commitment and ability to learn new things. He has made an exceptional contribution to the support team and customer care service areas, allowing us to continue to provide the support our customers have become accustomed to.
Here at MIE we are strong believers in investing in the future and playing a part in creating the workforce of tomorrow.
Why do MIE invest so heavily in apprentices?
Apprentices are part of the future of our world and therefore potentially the future of most industries. In today’s media, a lot of emphasis is put on the unemployment rate and lack of opportunities for young adults.
As a successful & rapidly growing company, we feel we are in a position to give our younger generation help and guidance when needed. We were all once in their shoes and would probably not be in the positions we are today if we were not once given a chance. The other thing to remember is that you are dealing with people who are at the beginning of their working life and are ready to learn. This enables you, as a company, to teach them the way you wish for them to work and the morals you abide by. At this early stage, they have not been susceptible to years of exposure to different ways (and potentially incorrect ways) of doing things.
Where do we see our apprentices further down the line?
Since the start of our apprenticeship scheme in July 2013, we have had four of our apprenticeships come on board under full employment, and currently have three more still contracted under the apprenticeship scheme.
Our apprenticeship to full time employment rate stands at 100%, meaning that from a business point alone, the time and effort put into the next generation has not been wasted. Business aside, our Directors, Sam and Chris, feel a sense of pride when they see a young and inexperienced apprentice develop into a fully independent and responsible adult.
