Apprentices

  • “Thank you to Shared Apprenticeships and Kier Group for giving me the opportunity to work in the construction industry. I look forward to the future to come!” – EB, Site Management Apprentice, Devon
  • “The bus turns out to be a bit faster and way cheaper!”  (Mentor review of travel) – CP, Electrical Apprentice, Devon
  • “Thank you again for the support. Thank you for everything I really appreciate it.” – JF, Roofing Apprentice, Somerset
  • “We would highly recommend Shared Apprenticeships as an early careers path into the construction industry. They provide mentoring, liaise with college and the Institution of Civil Engineers, pay on time, and answer any questions we may have. We are now progressing on to a degree apprenticeship with the main contractor that we have been with on placement throughout and expect to complete this early as the result of our prior qualification.” – LP & KR, Civil Engineering Apprentices, Bristol
  • “I can’t highly recommend Shared Apprenticeships enough.  If you are a school or college leaver looking for a great opportunity in Construction then this is for you!  During your apprenticeship you get to experience the industry first hand in your chosen discipline and there’s a huge variety of contractors, so you gain the very best skills and knowledge and progress in your role, becoming qualified while working, and being paid all at the same time. It led me to join the main contractor I was with on a management trainee position which was an amazing opportunity!  Without Shared Apprenticeships, I would not be where I am today.” – HS, Site Management Trainee, Bristol
  • “I started my career in construction working for Shared Apprenticeships and was on placement with McCarthy and Stone.  After finishing my apprenticeship, I stayed with McCarthy and Stone and have worked my way up to become a Site Manager.” – MB, Site Manger (and former apprentice), McCarthy and Stone
  • “I am really enjoying my apprenticeship and I feel I have learned more in the 6 months I have been here than I did in my 2 years at University:  it is so different being out on site rather than sitting at a desk. And working with Shared Apprenticeships has been good – I like that I always have someone to talk to, sometimes raising an issue on-site can feel intimidating but I know I can call up SA, speak freely, and get some advice and support.” – DS, Construction Site Management Apprentice, Bristol
  • “I started my career as a Level 3 Construction Apprentice with Shared Apprenticeships and gained valuable experience on a variety of projects. Going through Shared Apprenticeships was very beneficial as it enabled me to get a foothold into the construction industry and to kickstart my career.  From the outset, I was on placement with Morgan Sindall, who awarded me Best Trainee of the Year and I went on to do a Level 4 HNC and have subsequently worked on projects such as multi storey car parks, sports halls/gyms, schools, and student accommodation ranging in value from £3m to £34m.  I am now a Site Manager for Morgan Sindall and completing a degree in Construction Management at Solent University.” – OB, Site Manager (and former apprentice), Morgan Sindall
  • “Shared Apprenticeships gave me the opportunity to start a new career in construction when the industry was slowing down from Covid. This opportunity led to me to find my career path in digital construction and my career progression has made me really excited for what the future holds for myself and the industry.” – EB, Digital Construction Apprentice, Plymouth
  • “Apprenticeships are a great alternative to Uni, particularly for the construction industry and I chose the apprenticeship route so I could learn in the workplace rather than solely in a classroom.  I am very grateful to Shared Apprenticeships for helping to get my career underway and for supporting me in my early days. From that solid start, I have now progressed to the BAM Construction Trainee Programme, I am completing a Level 6 degree apprenticeship in Construction Management and I am looking forward to the future. I would highly recommend Shared Apprenticeships as a route into the construction industry.” – HD, Assistant Site Manager (and former apprentice), BAM Construction
  • “I completed the Design, Surveying & Planning   T-Level (equivalent to 3 A-Levels) at college and went to work for Shared Apprenticeships to get my career started as a Level 4 Construction Apprentice. I like Shared Apprenticeships because they’re very hands-on and give you opportunities. As a result, I have had a variety of site experience with two different host companies and am building a great CV for when I finish my apprenticeship.” – ID, Construction Site Management Apprentice, Somerset
