Apprenticeships

hassle free, high quality, sustainable apprenticeships schemes for your business

Our vision is simple

We employ the apprentice, not you.

So they work on your site whilst we manage all the responsibilities associated with employment. Simple!

“To provide a low-risk and innovative way for contractors to partake in apprenticeship training without the long-term commitment.”

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.
