We are so excited to announce that Smith’s (Gloucester) Ltd has become the third official Employer Partner of AccXel!

As you may already be aware, our Employer Partners have pledged to give our apprentices their first on-site experience whilst they are studying at our training facility in Gloucestershire, the Forest of Dean.  

Speaking on the partnership announcement Nicola Bird, our Founder and Director, has said “We are particularly excited about our partnership with Smith’s, as they are another family-owned business that have values very much in line with our own. They are currently championing environmental sustainability within the construction sector, which is one of the many reasons we are delighted to have Smith’s on board as an Employer Partner.”

Lisa Smith, Executive Officer at Smith’s, said “We felt from the offset that AccXel understood our goals as an employer. We are really excited about working with them and we feel like it’s going to be a great partnership to kickstart our training programme in our construction department.”

With Smith’s strive for excellence and AccXel’s incredible training procedures we wholeheartedly believe that this partnership will produce construction workers of the highest calibre.
