Praise for construction apprenticeship scheme

September 8th, 2011

people-72_tcm17-3948A new project to encourage construction firms to take on apprentices has been praised by participants.

The Pathway to Construction scheme, which was funded with support from the Cross Industry Construction Apprenticeship Task Force and the Federation of Master Builders, has been piloted in Plymouth.

Pupils were provided with work experience placements at local building firms in order for both the young person and the enterprise to discover how suited they are to each other.

City College Plymouth head of construction Adrian Heath said: “For students to work alongside industry professionals and gain real hands-on practical experience can only be of benefit to both the construction industry and the students themselves.”

He added that the participants in this scheme have a sense of achievement and belonging as a result of taking part in community activities.

The government has also reduced the amount of legislation surrounding apprenticeships in order to encourage industries to take on more of these workers.

    Apprenticeships are a great way for the youth to get a skill for a job. There’s a UK website that answers pretty much every question regarding construction. Not sure if you ever heard of it but thought it would be good to share, maybe you even might talk about them.
