In National Apprenticeship Week, we’re shining a light on our latest cohort of apprentices and finding out more about their experience of learning while they’re earning.
Apprentice carpenters Zoe, Lloyd and Max and our first ever apprentice site manager Oli talk about why they chose construction as a career and how they are benefitting from training on the job.
We currently have 14 apprentices and trainees and are members of the 5% Club, a national movement committed to investing in new talent.
Training Manager Michelle Benjamin said: “For a company like us, taking on apprentices is really important because we want the next generation of construction workers to have the skills they need.
“There is a skills shortage in construction so it’s important that all companies play their part.”
She added: “We’re keen to dispel the myth that apprenticeships are just for school leavers. It’s a very practical way for older people to learn and pursue a career they really want and as more mature people they bring a different dimension to the role.”
