Teaming up with MTT Training, the first 4 weeks of the programme will be spent at the Carpentry Academy here in Banbury. Focusing initially on the Site Environment, H&S Basics and Tool Competency to ensure the aspiring carpenters are 'Site Ready' for their first day.

After that time, the apprentices will head out to site working closely with our chosen mentors as they start their journey in the industry.

More to come on this in the coming months!...

LJ's commitment to bringing through the next generation of carpenters

We're facing a skills shortage throughout the construction industry - more people are currently leaving than entering it. Skills shortages are predicted to be the biggest issue facing the industry.

The Chartered Institute of Building surveyed 2,096 construction workers, and the most popular reason the workers gave for the construction sector's ageing workforce was the reduction in young people entering the industry.

This reinforces our mission to train the next generation of carpenters. Every young carpenter we train is a step towards a stronger, more resilient construction sector, helping to secure the future of our industry

There's a balance to be made - introducing the new generation of carpenters to work alongside our talented and experienced carpenters who have "been there and done it".

We feel ensuring the younger generation's development is guided by experienced workers is invaluable.
