The first ever apprentices from an academy set up by a Sidmouth company are one step closure to graduating.

Fords South West Ltd launched a new kitchen and bathroom fitting programme earlier this year.

Now after four weeks of hard work, five apprentices will be taking the next step and joining professionals at the company for eight weeks to gain real life experience.

If they complete the course, through Fords’ Academy, the trainees will gain a level two apprenticeship, working towards a level three – with the opportunity to join the company’s ranks.

A Fords spokeswoman said: “Good Luck too all. You future is in your hands. We’ll help you every step of the way.”
