What you'll be doing?

Our apprentice programme is run in partnership with CITB, the Sector Skills Council for construction. It mixes college study with practical on-site training with experienced trade specialists, and a programme that goes well beyond the standard syllabus.

Once you’re accepted, you’ll start a two year structured Intermediate Apprenticeship. You’ll learn on the job, and in a locally approved college – and you’ll be earning all the time. At the end of your apprenticeship, you’ll have loads more experience and valuable job skills, plus a technical certificate and nationally recognised apprenticeship qualification. And that’s just the beginning. Once you’ve completed your apprenticeship, there are plenty more options available to you, if you’re ambitious as we think you are you’ll probably want to continue for a further year with our Advanced Apprenticeship.           

Reporting to the Site Manager, you will work towards gaining a nationally recognised apprenticeship qualification through on and off the job, trade specific training.

You will be expected to:

  • Complete the Barratt Training Manual
  • Work with your Supervisor to learn and develop your trade skills
  • Follow Barratt policy on site safety and behaviour
  • Record and/or report hazards on site

  • Organise work and complete within agreed acceptable time limits and standards
  • Use correct protective clothing and equipment
  • Keep a clean and tidy work area and dispose of waste correctly
  • Communicate with other workers/customers politely
  • Complete college work within agreed time limits
  • Be consistent at gathering quality work based evidence
Our start date will be the end of the Summer of 2021
