Apprenticeships in Construction

Watch Topic

I have several students interested in apprenticeships in Construction Trades, but there seems to be very few employers looking to take on apprentices in the Warwickshire area.  How can schools work more closely with construction companies to enable more apprentices to enter the Construction industry?

I have several pupils interested in construction too. I struggle every year to find valuable work experience placements for them due to health & safety constraints. There is a skills shortage and yet very few opportunities for pupils to get hands on experience.
