Community

At Intelect, we are fully committed to engaging with our local communities to support social and economic growth.

Through partnerships, support schemes and volunteer work, we have been able to ensure a positive impact in the regions in which we operate.

Training and development are at the heart of our values, with a strong emphasis on young people. Since 1998, our apprenticeship programme has seen rapid growth over the years, with over 80 apprentices passing through our doors and into a solid career path. We also pass these values onto the wider community, working with students to make them aware of the multiple career opportunities available in our regions. Charities such as the High Tide Foundation and Inspire 2 Learn are key partners in helping us to provide this support.

In 2019, we were proud to become a corporate partner to the High Tide Foundation, helping them on their mission to provide life changing career experiences to students across the Tees Valley. Through unique industry programmes, they are able to open students’ eyes to the diverse career options available to them across a range of industries and sectors, raising confidence and boosting aspirations of those who attend.

Sparks of inspirationEvery two years, we publish ‘Sparks of Inspiration’, an internal booklet that explores the numerous activities and fundraisers that we have supported at Intelect.

Helping to grow our community

Corporate Responsibility

Corporate Responsibility

Corporate Responsibility

Since our incorporation in 1997, Intelect has achieved a steady growth, expanding into new sectors, investing in our workforce, their skills and equipment, to meet the needs of new and existing customers.

As part of our growth we have always looked to employ staff from our local community, to set up new offices and workshops in the areas where we work and to help communities so they benefit from our presence.

The term 'Corporate Responsibilty' is increasingly being pushed to the front of how companies present themselves, for Intelect, this has just been part of good business practice since we started all those years ago!

Above everything we recognise people have the single greatest impact on our success and we feel the low turnover and long term service of our staff and partners confirms our dedication to this ethos.

Apprenticeships

Apprenticeships

Since 1998, apprenticeships have been the building blocks of the Intelect workforce, and have continued to be for the past 20 years as we have grown and progressed as a business.

Award winning apprentices

We have built a strong working relationship with our training providers, including JTL Training, Middlesbrough College and The Northern Skills Group, all of whom have been a constant support network to us and our apprentices, enabling us to get the best from them as they progress throughout their courses and with their careers.

The last few years has seen increased growth with the number of apprentices we take on. On average Intelect employ around 20-25 apprentices at any one time, ranging from 1st year apprentices, to those studying degree level or higher education courses.

When it comes to apprenticeships, Intelect’s ethos has always been ‘train to retain’. With over 50% of the Intelect workforce having previously been an apprentice, or still completing an apprenticeship, this means we retain the specialised skills needed for the industries we operate in, allowing us to maintain the highest standards of practice.

When Intelect started their apprenticeship programme back in 1998, it began with just 2 electrical apprentices, one of whom is still with the company today as a qualified electrician.

As Intelect has grown, the range of apprenticeship disciplines we offer has widened, with us now utilising them in all aspects of our business, from Accounting to CAD Design, and Administration to Welding & Pipework.

Our commitment to our apprentices is stronger now than ever, and ultimately everyone wins because of it. Whether our apprentices chose to remain with Intelect, or move on with their career elsewhere, they will leave with first class training and experience, and the Intelect team will have also developed and grown thanks to their contribution.

 

Our Apprenticeships

Here at Intelect, we offer a wide range of apprenticeships at different educational levels, allowing us to help our apprentices reach their maximum potential.

The courses we offer:

  • Electrical Engineering
  • Fabrication and Welding
  • Design
  • Administration
  • Accountancy
  • Pipefitting
  • Mechanical Fitting

Educational levels:

  • Level 2
  • Level 3
  • Level 4
  • HNC
  • HND
  • BEng Honours

Charlie Baker Apprentice Award

Charlie Baker Award

For the past 3 years, we have recognised the hard work and achievements of our apprentices through the Charlie Baker Apprentice of the Year Award, which is dedicated to a former employee, who sadly passed away in 2014.

Throughout his time with us, Charlie was a huge asset to the Intelect team, and often played a large part in the development of apprentices, taking many of them under his wing, which is why we decided to create and dedicate this award to him.

Winners of the Charlie Baker Apprentice Award

  • 2016/17 Apprentice of the Year: Tom Blakemore.
  • 2015/16 Apprentice of the Year: James Steel.
