Their achievements were celebrated at a special graduation ceremony.
CEO of Anglo American’s Crop Nutrients business Tom McCulley said: “It was an honour to present the Engineering Apprentices with their certificates, these young people are the future of the Woodsmith Project and we’re pleased they’re all going to be staying with us beyond their apprenticeship to develop their careers further.
“I’m impressed with the dedication and teamwork they exhibited over the last four years and even in the face of challenges including Covid, they never wavered.”
One of the 13 apprentices who graduated is Megan Neale.
She said: “I’ve learned so much on my apprenticeship and I can’t wait to apply that in my new role.”
Early Talent Specialist, Katie Castleton, added: “It’s been great to watch this group grow and develop over the course of the last four years.
"It’s testament to their drive, enthusiasm and professionalism that they’re all moving into roles on the project.”
There are more than 1,600 people currently working on the Woodsmith Project, which includes over 1,000 people from the local area.
Anglo American’s longer-term aim is that at least 80% of the operational workforce is sourced from the local community.
