Why choose construction?
The construction industry is so much more than large men, digging and operating heavy machinery - whether you enjoy working with your hands, planning and organising, or doing something creative, there is a role for you and you’ll get paid while you learn your trade. There are other benefits too;
- Loads of variety Every day on a construction project will bring new and interesting challenges, so no two days will be the same and you’ll never be bored
- You’ll get to build the stuff people depend on How many professionals in other industries can point at a new hospital, school or sports stadium and say “I helped to build that”?
- You’ll get to see immediate results Regardless of your role on site, seeing the progress that you’ve made at the end of every day is one of the most rewarding parts of a job in construction
- You’ll be part of a team Strong working relationships are formed on construction projects because everyone on the team depends on everyone else to get the job done.
We’ll support you
From the day you submit your application form, a dedicated apprenticeship officer will be on hand to co-ordinate your training programme and support you throughout your apprenticeship. The apprenticeship officer is the link between you, the college (or training provider) and your employer. It's their job to monitor your progress on site and in training through reviews of your progress to make sure you achieve your final goal.
