BECOME AN APPRENTICE
---

Countryside together with their partner Home Group and Three Rivers District Council have launched a construction apprenticeship programme at South Oxhey in partnership with Joe Brennan Training (JBT). The programme has been a great success. To date, the on-site apprenticeship programme has enabled two local residents to gain practical experience required to achieve professional  in construction.

If you are interested in working on the South Oxhey development and would like to start a career in the construction industry, further opportunities on the site are available. We are particularly looking for finishing trades such as electricians, plumbers, decorators and carpenters but also ground workers, bricklayers and scaffolders. Our apprenticeship scheme need people who are committed to working hard and who are eager to learn.

The apprenticeship scheme trains those aged 18 and above to reach the required standard to enable the trainees to perform a skilled role. Apprentices receive guidance and support throughout their scheme duration, from before their technical studies until their ultimate qualification and employment.
The scheme also ensures apprentices are given mobility from one programme to another until the on-site qualification has been completed. To date, the partnership between Countryside and JBT has funded 56 apprentices across various sites, 85% of whom have completed the programme, qualified and secured employment.

Apprentice opportunities will be advertised via Joe Brennan Training, Ascend, notice boards, community newsletter and the Oxhey OWL page.

Contact Joe Brennan on 07976315763, or Hollie Eade, our Community Resident Liaison, on 07436 030604  or email Hollie.Eade@cpplc.com.
