hassle free, high quality, sustainable apprenticeships schemes for your business
Our vision is simple
We employ the apprentice, not you.
We provide a low-risk and innovative way for contractors to partake in apprenticeship training without the long-term commitment.
The flexible nature of this scheme can provide your business with the chance to secure new contracts and at the same time an opportunity for an apprentice.
The apprentice is employed by the Shared Apprenticeship Scheme and is hosted on site by you. We take care of all the HR responsibilities associated with employment.
Constructing the Future
In partnership with the Construction Industry Training Board (CITB), Constructing the Future connects ambitious, talented and hard working apprentices with the perfect construction apprenticeship vacancy.
We have employed over 200 apprentices, cover all five North West counties, won a Chartered Institute of Housing award for Partnership of the Year and have been quoted in the House of Lords as an example of good practice.
Benefits to You, the Contractor
Our Shared Apprenticeship Service gives you the opportunity to take on an apprentice, even if you can’t commit to the full two/three year duration; a placement can be as short as twelve weeks.
- Because the apprentice is employed by us, the employment responsibilities will be taken care of, and you will only be re-charged for the time the apprentice is with you.
- Your business will benefit from significantly reduced costs normally associated with recruitment.
- We will fully support your apprentice, and we are committed to helping them complete their qualification. Around 90% of our apprentices go on to gain full-time employment within the sector.
- You have the option to take over the apprentice’s employment at any stage, but there is no obligation to do so.
At the end of the placement the apprentice is simply handed back to the Shared Apprenticeship Service who will organise their next placement within the local area.
What We Do for You
There is no ‘one size fits all’ package. We take the time to listen to your needs and strive to offer you a product that ensures a successful outcome for all.
We provide a flexible consultancy service that supports contractors to achieve employment and skills outcomes mandated via local authorities, procurement frameworks and other commissioners. In doing so, we reduce the workload associated with achieving employment and skills targets from the contractor, allowing them to focus on the core project.
