On Monday 3 September Stortford Interiors and the FIS celebrated the launch of their flagship three-year youth engagement apprenticeship programme, Project Futures at the Broadgate Welcome Centre in London, hosted by British Land.

The event celebrated the first wave of new Project Futures apprentices who will embark on both carpentry and drylining apprenticeships, working on the British Land Broadgate Estates and help build our capital city.

The launch was attended by representatives across the supply chain, from the client themselves, tier one contactors Sir Robert McAlpine and Laing O’Rourke, Camden Council, the FIS President, CITB, journalists and many other partner stakeholders in support of Project Futures.

Full coverage of the celebration launch event and how Stortford Interiors has launched an innovative and committed SME response to the UK sector skills crisis based on their core values will be available over the next few weeks.  For information on how you can work with the FIS in creating your own apprenticeship onboarding process and attack the skills gap contact Amanda Scott, FIS Sector Skills Engagement Manager via amandascott@thefis.org
