Sherwoods’ Managing Director, Ken Brennan, said: “Being nominated for this award is a fantastic achievement for all of the people involved in training and apprenticeships at Sherwood Electronics. The Electronics Industry is currently a very challenging sector and bringing on talented and dedicated young people through apprenticeships is vital to achieve a sustainable model for high quality service to our customers. Sherwood Electronics and our learning partners, the Chesterfield College Group, have developed a work-based learning programme which has proved to be exceptionally successful in creating employment and developing careers.
