Whilst the construction industry is claiming that skill shortages are rife throughout the UK and ‘Brexit’ provides the canvas to examine the training of the next generation of construction professionals, Makers will continue in their search to recruit their next 2 construction site management apprentices.
Showcasing at the Walsall Academy in the West Midlands this March will provide an ideal opportunity for Makers to demonstrate its apprentice scheme along side other national providers to the 6th form students of the academy as to the relative merit of the “earn and learn” ethos behind the programme.
Makers have a card up their sleeves by taking ex pupils, Josh Lake and Elliot Kemp who can provide the inside track of what it’s like to be part of the Makers Apprenticeship Programme and hopefully persuade 2 ideal candidates to take the plunge.
“It will be great to go back and see old faces and tell them what I’ve been doing over this past year. I’ve learnt so much from Rod my mentor and my college tutors”
Elliot Kemp, Apprentice
“The beauty of the partnerships we have is that those candidates that could be suitable are introduced to us very early in the process which allows both ourselves and the students to prepare and study without the added pressure of finding work”
Sean Allsop, HSQE Manager
“Adding staff or recruiting is never easy, so for us to be able to showcase our programme against some stiff competition is an opportunity. The construction industry over the past months has had some bad press and it’s our job to engage the next generation to take the plunge. Walsall Academy have been fantastic ambassadors for us and we look forward to meeting the next exciting addition to the company”
Simon Lamb, Managing Director
If you know someone who is currently sitting their ‘A’ Levels and is unsure whether university is the best option, then please get them to consider vocational learning.
