Expand your business with a construction apprentice

We provide a number of construction pathways, so you can find the apprenticeship that is right for your business. Our construction apprenticeships include brickwork, carpentry and joinery, painting and decorating, construction operations, maintenance operations, interior systems and plastering.

Grow Your Workforce

Apprenticeships play a crucial role in helping businesses grow and prosper, at the heart of the government’s drive to equip people of all ages with the skills employers need. Growing your workforce can improve how you work, increase profits and raise productivity. Taking on an apprentice is a practical and cost-effective way to expand your workforce.

Funding and grants

Training is completely free of charge when you take on a 16 – 18 year old apprentice. Plus, if you are not an apprenticeship levy payer (your wage bill is less than £3 million), you will receive a £1,000 Government incentive.

There are lots of funding options available, making apprenticeship training affordable for your business. Our experts at the GC Business Hub will be able to explain your funding options and help you get the most out of apprenticeship training.
