If you want to work in the construction industry, doing an apprenticeship is a great way to lay the foundations for your future career.
Whether you want to focus on a particular trade, gain knowledge in a specialist area, increase your employment prospects by becoming multi-skilled, or focus on the technical side of the industry, our range of apprenticeships will enable you to develop the skills you need.
We offer apprenticeships in the traditional construction trades of brickwork, carpentry, electrical, plumbing and painting and decorating, as well as a range of new programmes including construction plant operative, property maintenance operative, surveying technician and quantity surveying technician.
During your apprenticeship you’ll combine working for an employer with studying at college – usually attending once a week – and, because you’ll be doing a real job for a real employer, you’ll get paid too!
What’s more, you’ll be supported throughout your training by a college assessor who will visit you in the workplace to make sure you are meeting your targets and that both you and your employer are getting the most out of your apprenticeship.
You’ll do your training in our purpose-built construction centre, on the Wellington Road campus in Bilston, which has dedicated workshops and classrooms for brickwork, carpentry and joinery, electrical and electronics, gas centre, groundworks, painting and decorating, plant, plastering, plumbing and rail and is equipped with a range of industry-standard kit and equipment.
We have excellent relationships with local employers and develop training to meet the needs of their businesses, so you can be assured you’ll gain the skills that they are looking for in their employees – and, if you impress them during your training, you may even be offered a job when you’ve completed apprenticeship and gained your qualification.
And, did you know that apprenticeships aren’t just for new staff? if you’re already employed in the industry and want to improve your skills and boost your promotion prospects you can benefit from apprenticeship training too – just ask your employer to email firstname.lastname@example.org and a member of the team will contact them to discuss your training further.
