Peterborough Apprentices Put Caterpillar Values to the Test by Volunteering

Caterpillar Peterborough Apprentices were recently welcomed into their positions with a team-building and volunteer day at the Railworld Wildlife Haven.

The opportunity gave each apprentice a taste of how Caterpillar values translate beyond the workplace. Apprentices from a wide variety of departments such as quality, engineering, research & development, design, finance and many others all worked together as one united team to get the job done – putting Caterpillar’s values of Teamwork and Commitment to the test.  Both first-year and second-year apprentices were in attendance ultimately completing several  projects – with a goal to prepare the site for the Queen’s Award event.

The team’s many achievements included the construction of a new suspended wooden walkway, the installation of a crankshaft and restoration and painting of a Victorian-era hand drill. They also performed maintenance across the entire site, making a huge improvement to the visitor experience.

Caterpillar recognizes the importance of apprenticeships and our industry-recognized schemes are a prime example of our commitment to developing people.
