Baxi's first cohort of apprentice graduates standing in front of the pitch at the Coventry Building Society Arena

First Baxi apprentices celebrate their success

The first cohort of Baxi apprentices have celebrated their success with a graduation ceremony at the Coventry Building Society Arena.

The event recognised the outstanding achievements of the field engineer apprentices, its degree apprentices, and colleagues from departments across the company who have completed apprenticeships in the past 12 months. A visit to the Engineering Design Show and a lunch hosted by Baxi MD Karen Boswell rounded off the celebrations.

Baxi’s Early Careers advisor Krystal McKinnell said: “We are extremely proud of the success of each of our apprenticeship graduates. At Baxi, we believe that investing in apprenticeships is vital if we are to tackle the skills gap in the UK heating sector. Our goal is to support individuals in their early careers and beyond, shaping the future of the next generation of our industry so that they can further tackle important sustainability issues and introduce new low-carbon heating solutions.”

Field engineer apprentice Madison Dowding said: “I began the field service apprenticeship straight after school. I was daunted at first, but the support from the business, colleagues and my mentors has been brilliant and has really pushed me to excel in my role – so much so that I won apprentice of the year at college and now I’m ready for the next step in my career.”

Baxi’s apprenticeships aim to develop individuals in a variety of roles to enable them to achieve a rewarding and satisfying career with the opportunity for future continuous career development. The company currently employs 47 apprentices across different parts of its business. It has also provided support for Baxi Approved Installers to take on apprentices and partners with colleges to support budding installers.

The company has now welcomed its new group of apprentices for 2023 which includes the next cohort of field service engineers, as well as in health and safety, procurement, carpentry, tool-making, welding, maintenance and CNC engineering.
