Allison Homes is on the look out for new recruits to join its apprenticeship scheme in September.

The Bourne-based housebuilder runs the scheme in partnership with Stamford College to give students opportunities in construction trades.

Apprentices usually spend one day a week studying at college and four days on site and are typically involved in bricklaying, carpentry, plumbing and electrician courses.

Apprenticeships can last from two to five years and lead to a National Vocational Qualification (NVQ).

Allison Homes’ current apprentices have been on the scheme for two years.

Two passed at the beginning of the year, and another four will complete their courses by this summer.

Jack Sharpe, 18, from Market Deeping, is studying carpentry and working on two Allison Homes developments in Cambridgeshire.

“I enjoy the fact that I'm learning a trade that I’m very keen to do," he said.

"I look forward to the time when I'm qualified and able to be left to work on my own."

Naomi Tickle, apprenticeship development Manager at Allison Homes, said: “Being on site gives our apprentices invaluable experience as to what it’s like in the ‘real world’, something which can’t easily be taught from a classroom.

"We’re thrilled at how successful our scheme has been so far, and we’d like to thank all of our apprentices for their hard work and passion."

Emma Hill, head of faculty for technical and modern construction skills at Stamford College, added: “This partnership has a strong emphasis on delivering skills required for the future workforce.

"This supports the curriculum design of programs at the college.”
