Apprenticeships in


Brickwork or Carpentry and Joinery

Working as an apprentice will give you the opportunity to build a solid foundation of technical knowledge and gain real life experience. You’ll combine on-the-job training with practical lessons at college, where our specialist staff will teach you in our fully equipped workshops.

This programme will help broaden your understanding of the whole construction industry, but you’ll still be encouraged to specialise in brickwork or carpentry and joinery.
