What you'll be doing?

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

Our Trade Apprentice Programme is run in partnership with Stephenson College in Leicestershire and York College in York. 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 an 18 month structured Intermediate Apprenticeship, that’s at least 6 months quicker than other programmes. You’ll learn on the job, and during intensive residential training weeks at the College. All accommodation, travel and subsistence is paid for during the block weeks and you’ll start off with three weeks in college, returning home each weekend. This will prepare you to fully contribute as soon as you get on site. You will then return to college around every 20 weeks for a two week block of intensive training - and you’ll be earning all the time.

At the end of your Intermediate Apprenticeship, you’ll have loads more experience and valuable job skills, plus a nationally recognised apprenticeship qualification. And that’s just the beginning. Once you’ve completed your Intermediate 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 (Carpentry/Joinery only).

You will be expected to:

  • Complete the Barratt Training Manual
  • Complete site and college work within agreed acceptable time limits and standards
  • Be consistent at gathering quality work based evidence
  • Work with colleagues to learn and develop your trade skills
  • Safely use and maintain hand tools, portable power tools and equipment
  • Communicate with colleagues, lecturers and customers politely

Our programmes will commence in May, August and September 2022
