Mar 24 2016 Read 1029 Times

Sartorius Stedim Biotech (SSB) is delighted to announce that its Royston site (formerly TAP Biosystems), has won two prestigious awards at the Annual Cambridge Regional College Apprenticeship Dinner held in March. Chosen as category winners for the Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) Apprenticeships, the company also won “Overall Employer of the Year”, selected from over 800 local employers also offering apprenticeships with the college.

Since 2013 the company has taken on six apprentices for three years training in a modern, open-plan environment producing high value automated systems. Rotated every three months for experience in the different manufacturing, engineering and service departments, the apprentices also attend Cambridge Regional College studying for qualifications including a BTEC in Mechanical Engineering and an NVQ in Commissioning and Installation.

Neal Kidman, Apprenticeship Programme Manager, received the Best Stem Apprenticeship and Overall Employer of the Year Awards on behalf of the company.

Assistant Principal for Employer Engagement at Cambridge Regional College, Paul Skitt stated: “We are delighted to award Sartorius Stedim Biotech our overall Employer of the Year Award for 2016. They have shown an outstanding commitment to Apprenticeships over the past three years, working closely with Cambridge Regional College to help their apprentices achieve at an extremely high level. We congratulate them whole-heartedly on winning this well-deserved award.”

Neal Kidman from SSB added: “We’re proud to be independently recognised as performing to a very high standard with our apprenticeships. It’s a great boost to receive these awards and a testament to the commitment our apprentices and their managers have put in since we started the scheme. To meet increasing demand from the booming biotech sector, we need to grow our team of highly skilled engineers. By offering STEM apprenticeship schemes we can transfer our expertise and continue to build niche skills within the next generation of employees.”
