Apprenticeships & Training
Apprenticeships and training of tomorrow’s workforce
Developing a skilled workforce, able to deliver key trade skills across a broad project spectrum is a challenge for every firm, that is why we place the highest importance on identifying motivated and talented people from our region and providing opportunity to succeed.
It is an established fact that a company is only as good as the people who work for it, and never has this found greater resonance than in today’s construction industry. We address this through 100% workforce accreditation to CSCS (Construction Skills Certification Scheme) and through active membership to General Training Agreements within our region.
Going above and beyond industry norms has always been our way and so, we designed and developed our very own training and development programme - ESCALATE.
Our Escalate initiative offers apprenticeship training, work experience placements, skills training for young ‘NEET’ adults and unemployed people, whilst at the same time providing personal development support to our existing workforce.
- Escalate on the Job for apprenticeships and work placements.
- Escalate Awareness for workforce training and development.
- Escalate Professional for employees engaging in further/higher education.
- Escalate Mentoring for developing tomorrow’s managers and leaders.
In just 4 years from its launch, ESCALATE achieved regional and national recognition for effectiveness by being selected by industry experts as the Construction Excellence winner of the 2012 Award for Leadership and People Development.
Our commitment is backed up by accreditations as an Investors in People, Positive about Disabled People Two Ticks and Leaders in Diversity Company.
