Maintaining ‘We Invest in Apprentices’ Platinum
December 2023
Making work better

Following our initial assessment in 2019 where we were one of the first businesses globally to be awarded the Investors in People 'We Invest in Apprentices' Platinum accreditation, we are delighted to have successfully maintained our Platinum status, the highest accolade available.

The ‘We Invest in Apprentices’ framework is underpinned by three key areas of Commitment, Development and Communication & Support and acts as a benchmark for businesses globally embarking on their journey with apprenticeships and continuous development to provide a workplace for apprentices to flourish whilst harnessing the business benefits that they bring.

This achievement is therefore testament to our high-performing culture, ongoing commitment and development of our apprentices supported by engaged mentors with embedded leadership.


Claire Oliver, Head of HR comments, “We’re super proud of all the team who have helped to make TB+A what it is today, a high-performing Platinum accredited Partnership. We first introduced apprenticeships to the business formally in 2012 so it is so rewarding to see that 10 + years later we are being recognised for our excellence in this area, receiving Platinum accreditation for We Invest in Apprentices.

Our people are at the heart of everything we do and fostering a supportive and inclusive environment for them to grow and flourish is key to our continued success. The ‘We Invest in Apprentices’ standard provides us with a framework to continually improve and a focus for future learning and development, pushing us to always strive for more.”

"Troup Bywaters + Anders have continued to build on their most successful Platinum Apprenticeship Programme. They have made a number of improvements that embed a total support pathway for the apprentice from their entry onto the programme to their emergence as a fully qualified and experienced engineers, which is mirrored for their non engineering apprentices. On top of this, they imbue the apprentices with the TB+A core values and ethos, an unshakeable focus on quality and a forward looking value of sustainability in every aspect of their work."
