raig Gallagher is in no doubt that apprenticeships are the perfect way to pass on vital skills to the rising stars of the industry – and his latest young trainee agrees with him


wholeheartedly. The CEO of SELECT Member company Quinnergy Group is a firm believer in training the talent of tomorrow, as he outlines in a new SELECT video produced for Scottish Apprenticeship Week (SAW). Entitled Business Backing Talent – the theme of this year’s SAW – the film features Craig and young trainee Caitlin Kearney discussing their respective reasons for choosing an apprenticeship, and how the scheme has been a success for both sides.


As well as celebrating the many benefits that apprentices bring to

businesses, individuals and the economy, the video also salutes Scottish businesses’ ongoing commitment to electrical apprenticeships during challenging times. Filmed at Quinnergy’s premises in Strathaven, South Lanarkshire, Craig uses the film to explain his rationale for taking on apprentices at the fast-


growing company, which has made significant progress by delivering essential services during the COVID-19 period. He says: “I wanted to pass my experience, and the experience of my tradesmen, on to the new, up-and- coming stars of the industry. The apprentices, I have found, are eager to work and to go the extra mile. “If you are a really good tradesman,


you have a knowledge, a craftsmanship, and if you take it to the next level, nothing can replace that. I would say that’s one of the best reasons to go for an apprenticeship. It’s been the best thing I’ve ever done.”
