  • “We are delighted with the quality of the apprentice from Shared Apprenticeships. He is exceeding expectations very early in his career and has grown considerably in both independence and confidence, requiring little, if any, supervision to get tasks done.  When other apprentices can often need hand-holding year after year, he is picking up work that would not usually be achievable without 3 to 5 years’ experience and is generally fulfilling a role way beyond his status as an Apprentice Trainee.” – SVB, Build Manager, Willmott Dixon, Dorset
  • “Shared Apprenticeships is a business that is really making a difference and supporting the life chances for the next generation of the Construction workforce across the South West. The team mentor and manage the apprentices whilst we provide the environment for them to develop the industry skills required to be successful. Working with Shared Apprenticeships is a great opportunity to grow talent in the industry.” – GK, Construction Director – Western, BAM
  • “Galliford Try have worked with the Shared Apprenticeship scheme for over 5 years and value their services immensely. Previous candidates have gone on to degree apprenticeships at university and are now permanent members of our teams. The shared apprenticeship model allows us to find and employ local candidates. Where we have a framework commitment or shorter-term project in specific regions, we cannot always offer a full-term apprenticeship. This model gives us the opportunity to share an apprentice and enable his/her successful completion of their course with another construction company.  I have suggested to other local councils across the country that they too use this model.” – DJ, Galliford Try Building, West Mids & South West
  • “Thank you for working with us to bring such amazing talent to the industry and us at Willmott Dixon!” – RO, Social Value Manager, Willmott Dixon

  • “Shared Apprenticeships have provided us with 2 quality apprentice candidates to date who we are happy to host and coach through their apprenticeships and hopefully beyond. SA made the process very easy and have provided support to their candidates  to ensure the smooth transition for a win-win-win scenario for Shared Apprenticeships, Acorn and most importantly the apprentices, who get a great introduction to the construction industry which benefits all parties and the future of the industry.” – SB, Regional Construction Manager, Acorn Property Group

  • “We have been very impressed with the quality of the apprentices provided by Shared Apprenticeships. They are considerably better than any Trainee or Apprentice that I have ever worked with, demonstrate an exemplary attitude, listen, are interested, not afraid to ask, clearly want to learn and take on responsibilities which are above and beyond those usually associated with a Trainee.” – RS, Project Manager, Acorn Property Group’s Exeter Region
  • “Our apprentice from Shared Apprenticeships is a fast learner with excellent communication skills and a positive attitude to work. Her work is always completed in a timely manner with good attention to detail and she has the confidence to ask the wider team questions when needing something clarified. It has been great to see her confidently take on more responsibilities within the Business Team and develop her skills further. She is a brilliant team member and is a pleasure to work with.” – BP, Business Operations Coordinator, Treveth Holdings
  • “Starting his journey as a site management apprentice through Shared Apprenticeships, our apprentice recently transitioned to the Kier Digital Construction team, making an immediate and profound impact. His adaptability, from site management to excelling in digital construction, is truly commendable.
