Delivering the promise

Our innovative shared apprenticeship scheme was established in 2010 in response to industry demand, as a way of providing construction contractors with an opportunity to meet local training obligations, and to maximise additional training opportunities for apprentices. In short, the project turns short-term opportunities into full-time apprenticeships.
