Meet the apprentices
British Gas has a long history of training apprentices. In the past year alone we spent £25m giving our apprentices new, much-needed skills. Many of our 33,000 employees today started their British Gas careers as apprentices.
As one of the UK’s largest training providers, every year hundreds of apprentices are trained through our six outstanding OFSTED-rated Energy Academies. These academies are based across the country, set up in locations where communities have experienced skills shortages.
