Annual Apprentice Away Day 2023

Our annual Apprentice Away Day for 2023 took place at Escarmouche, Ireland’s largest Paintball & Multi-Activity Park. Apprentices and their line managers took to the action park to improve their teamwork, communication, problem-solving abilities – and of course, to let off some steam.

Our HR team organised a brilliant day that was enjoyed by all, including paintball, foosball, tug-of-war and an assault course.

We take great pride in our Apprenticeship Programme and the feedback we receive on the format of the programme. Including a day full of fun-filled activities and an Apprentice Away Day each year provides an opportunity for our apprentices from different teams to come together to share, learn from and support each other.
