Build Your Future with Y Prentis

2nd September 2019

Apprenticeships are a great path for people at any age stage of their career, whether they’re starting out, re-entering the workforce or just wanting to reskill or change careers. But sometimes, an apprenticeship can be hard to secure.

At Y Prentis, we recruit apprentices for various construction trades across south-east Wales on an ongoing basis. Our shared apprenticeship model means that apprentices get placed with various contractors throughout their apprenticeship, providing job security and giving them a diverse experience that will help them develop their CV and establish good relationships with several potential future employers.

Throughout September, we’ll be running our Build Your Future campaign to tell you more about how you can become an apprentice with us. We’ll be visiting all the local colleges across south-east Wales to promote our current vacancies, as well as many community career events. You can find us at:
