Apprentices help business blossom

Have your say

A Yorkshire retailer is going from strength to strength with the help of five hard-working apprentices recruited by a Sheffield training centre.

Transform Images opened its first shop in Wakefield in 2012 and now has five stores across Yorkshire including Barnsley, Doncaster and Leeds.

The business specialises in top quality bespoke printing onto canvases and clothing, all carried out in house and completed within an hour.

The five apprentices were recruited with the help of The Source Skills Academy, based near Meadowhall.

Co-owner Clive Warner said: “The academy found us some excellent, enthusiastic apprentices who want to work hard.

“In our experience, the main benefit of the apprenticeship programme is that we have the opportunity develop our staff from scratch, ensuring they learn how we operate and gain the skills which they need to help our organisation grow.

“Thanks in part to our fantastic apprentices Transform Images is growing fast with five new branches opening across Yorkshire in the coming months.”
