DSC_0764-cropped.jpgToday marks the culmination of a great deal of hard work and determination by eleven successful applicants to the INEOS Modern Apprenticeship programme who join 29 already enrolled on the programme.

Since the application process opened in December 2019, this new group of Modern Apprentices have navigated their way through applications, interviews and socially distanced assessment centres to finally arrive at this day.

Having initially received in excess of 400 applications to join the highly sought after vocational training programme, the INEOS Recruitment Team at Grangemouth have employed a series of well-established and rigorous processes to narrow down and select the next group of people to join the four year long programme.   

Duncan McIntosh, Learning and Development Manager, INEOS Grangemouth said, “The calibre of candidates has been exceptionally high again this year and it is really pleasing to note that vocational training routes into employment remain very popular. The reputation of INEOS’ Modern Apprenticeship Scheme remains strong particularly with local candidates who recognise the significant opportunities employment with a company like ours can bring.”

“Ahead is a first class training programme with Forth Valley College that will prepare our Modern Apprentices for a career in our industry. We wish them all the very best on their first day and we look forward to working with them over the next four years, supporting each as they grow and develop.”

The four year training programme mixes high quality academic learning provided via Forth Valley College at their newly opened Falkirk Campus, alongside unrivalled practical hands on experiences at the INEOS manufacturing and processing facilities at INEOS Chemcials Grangemouth and INEOS FPS Kinneil.

Local schools have once again proven a great source of talent for INEOS to draw from with ten of the eleven candidates attending schools in the Falkirk Council area.
