The Aldi apprenticeship programme delivered in partnership with Lifetime has added great value to Aldi as an employer. I first-hand have seen the significantly positive impact it has had to our business and stores. Over the past 3 years, I have overseen 14 apprentices that have flourished into competent, qualified and extremely driven managers. We’ve had managers graduate to both Deputy and Assistant Manager, so with up to 40 stores being built in Bathgate region alone over the next years, this programme has provided us with our leaders of tomorrow.
