The fourth Award Ceremony proceeded on April 22 in King Place in the presence of the Chairman of Veolia Environnement, M. Henri Proglio and some prestigious guests as the French Ambassador to the United Kingdom, M. Maurice Gourdault-Montagne, Cyrille du Peloux, Chief Executive Officer of Veolia Transport and in charge of Northern Europe for the Company and Simon Waugh, Chief Executive Officer of the National Apprenticeship Service. Nearly 400 guests and graduates were present.
Henri Proglio said:
"In this context, I'm proud of the commitment of our English team in the development to apprenticeship programs and National Vocational Qualifications (NVQ). This commitment shows the universality and the modernity of two main principles: Alternation which offers both academic and work based training and lifelong training.
"In this sense, Veolia settled very ambitious objectives: 4% of our workforce involved in alternation training, and 20 hours of training per employee each year.
"Our project in the United Kingdom to expand the Campus to regional satellites with a more technical and operational focus makes sense and is in line with our strategy."
