The 3-year programme will see the boys’ study part-time and continue to work for Makers Construction. The drive to provide industry with suitability qualified professionals is at the core of the syllabus.

Chris Conway highlighted the need to take full advantage of the facilities that BCU has to offer and complete student studies to the highest level.

Josh and Joe“Our apprentices are key in the next step of our development, we as a business have a duty to ensure they can be the best they can be. We have amazing support mechanisms within our programme and opening up this opportunity with BCU is testament to that approach. We are very proud of their achievements so far but we have a lot of hard work in front of us…”
