Winners of Veolia's National Apprentice of the Year awards

Resource management company Veolia has celebrated its apprentices by hosting a National Apprentice of the Year awards ceremony at the House of Commons.

Ten Apprentice of the Year awards were handed out at the company's third annual ceremony for services up and down the country.

Estelle Brachlianoff, senior executive vice-president of Veolia UK & Ireland, said: "Veolia’s objective has been to have 300+ apprentices in the business and we’ve also developed our apprenticeships in-line with the passions and interests of millennials in mind."

Veolia began to develop an apprenticeship training programme in order to tackle the UK's growing skill shortage problem, where it is estimated that British companies will be 20,000 engineers and technicians short each year.

Brachlianoff added: "I honestly believe apprenticeships hold the key to success of industry across the UK and if we’re to close the predicted skills gap businesses across the country must keep pushing to deliver the homegrown talent we need."

Veolia's apprenticeships are provided in areas including maintenance engineering, sustainable waste management and mechanical engineering.
