There has never been a more important time in this economic climate to hire apprentices and help get our young people into skilled work via NVQ apprenticeships. C&P are great supporters of the ‘Earn as you Learn’ concept and find apprentices are keen, motivated members of staff who want to learn and help businesses to grow. Training is developed in consultation with the industry so apprentices learn the right skills for the job. We currently have three apprentices completing an NVQ under the Construction Apprenticeship Scheme, attending college once a week and spending the remainder of their time working alongside qualified staff gaining invaluable work experience. We are very proud of all our students who, with the on-going support from the tutors at City College, Plymouth and The Skills Group are doing exceptionally well.
