Carpentry Academy Completes First Work Experience Programme!

Over the past 7 weeks, 10 students have attended our Carpentry Academy 1 day a week to complete their Work Experience programme.

Our 'Site Ready' course is there to fill the knowledge and skills void that most students leave college with.

The course curriculum is focused on Site-based practices such as stud walls and winding staircases. But we also use our facility to educate on Site Manager Support, Waste Management and Power Tool Competency.

We're very proud that 5 of the 10 Students have been awarded Trainee positions with us and will be working with us on site within 4-6 weeks.

Here they are pictured with their Carpentry Basics starter tool bags funded by LJ Construction.

Giving back

We feel the funding in the industry doesn't reach the right places...

This is why we feel it's important that companies such as ours have a responsibility and so we take it into our own hands to bring the next generation into the industry.

7 weeks of training, 10 tool kits, 10 CSCS cards and 10 large pizzas... why? Because the industry won't be here unless we give something back.

We look forward to welcoming not 10, but 20 students onto the programme in 2024!
