We’re a construction based shared apprenticeship scheme operating across South East Wales. Funded by the Construction Industry Training Board (CITB) and Welsh Government, we employ apprentices across many construction trades to meet the needs of today’s construction industry.


We are the first apprenticeship company in Wales to be awarded the We invest in people apprentices accreditation, by Investors in People, following our successful inclusion in their pilot phase which was rolled out in November 2020. We have also been awarded Platinum status, which is the highest accolade available, demonstrating our commitment to achieving performance excellence in the services we provide to the construction industry. You can read more about this award in an article which was published in Business News Wales HERE.
