Apprenticeship Scheme

The construction industry suffers skills gaps from time to time.

It is therefore vital that the industry actively encourages new talent.

Below is an example of how sites can use apprenticeship opportunities to achieve this:

  • An apprenticeship scheme was introduced, with groups of 30 individuals given 6 weeks work experience (at least twice per year), many were offered full-time positions once they had completed their work experience;
  • They were divided in to three groups and rotated weekly on classroom lessons, shadowing a chosen trade on site and a live project of their own, where they tendered and programmed the work, ordered materials and physically carried out the work; swapping foreman roles.

Sites can also get involved in National Apprenticeships Week, every March, to raise awareness amongst schools, colleges and the community and showcase the opportunities available within the construction industry. Click here for more information on National Apprenticeship Week.
