Ideal Standard to power the next generation of apprentices at InstallerSHOW

Ideal Standard is set to deliver a number of fully-funded apprenticeships to small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) during InstallerSHOW 2024.

Through the apprenticeships, those selected will receive fully-accredited installation qualifications, with training delivered by a CIPHE-recognised provider.

In addition to fully funding the apprenticeships, Ideal Standard will be providing 1-to-1 support to the SMEs throughout the process, assisting not just with recruitment, but all training and onboarding of the apprentice – while providing on-the-job support from its team of service engineers.

SMEs and apprentices will be able to visit Ideal Standard’s UK sites and receive factory tours, providing a valuable look into the manufacturing of Ideal Standard’s ceramic ranges, how the business works, and the full supply chain process.

Businesses can enter the giveaway by completing a short quiz and application form, or by signing up at Ideal Standard’s stand, 4F13, with entry open to companies wanting to sign up an apprentice for an industry-specific qualification.

One winner will be announced on day one and two of InstallerSHOW during the Bathrooms and Beers sessions at the BMA theatre starting at 4pm, with a third winner announced at the BMA theatre at 3pm on day three. A panel of judges made up of Ideal Standard and Bathroom Manufacturers Association representatives will review and select the companies.

Jo Edwards, Channel Director, Residential and Trade, says: “Apprentices and SMEs are the backbone of the installation and plumbing sector, and we want to make sure the next generation of installers have the investment they need to flourish.

“It’s key for us to work closely with SMEs and installers to support the sector, understand current trends and ways of working, and make a real difference.”

Tom Reynolds, CEO of the Bathroom Manufacturers Association, added: “Apprenticeship initiatives like this are vital to helping the KBB and installation industry become more attractive to young people across the UK.

“The extra steps Ideal Standard is taking to support apprentices and SMEs with access to its manufacturing plants and on-the-job support are key to futureproofing the industry and attracting new and diverse talent.”
