DAF Trucks has been recognised in the 2016 Centrica Top 100 Apprenticeship Employer List for the fifth time in six years.
Compiled by the National Apprenticeship Service, the Top 100 List is drawn-up annually and was announced at the National Apprentice Awards on January 20 at London’s Grosvenor House Hotel.
The DAF apprentice programme has trained in excess of 1,500 people since its inception in 1995, while a full 20% of all DAF Technicians at dealer level were trained on DAF apprenticeships.
Tony Shepherd, business services manager, said: “The DAF apprentice programme is becoming a regular fixture in the Top 100 List for good reason; it is quite simply the biggest and best apprentice programme in the commercial vehicle industry.
"In fact, I would place the DAF Apprentice Programme alongside the best in any industry.
“DAF Apprentices are at the beginning of their careers, so it’s crucial we provide them with the means to get off to a great start."
