Environment

At Shared Apprenticeships, there is an additional environmental benefit to our offer.

We aim to minimise travel pollution by:

  • Keeping our apprentices local, and working on construction sites as near as possible to their hometown
  • Ensuring that many of our apprentices have the option to study their course on block release or in the workplace
  • Funding a saver Railcard for those apprentices able / wanting to travel by train instead of driving

Our Apprenticeships are based on apprenticeship Standards, most of which incorporate sustainability and environmental considerations. Examples include:

  • waste awareness – e.g., surface water management and recycling
  • minimising the environmental impact of construction projects
  • understanding of the sustainability issues in projects across economic, social and environmental aspects
  • assessing, identifying and recording the environmental impact of projects
  • understanding the principles of environmentally responsible work practices
  • knowledge of environmental factors when undertaking construction work and potential impacts
  • compliance with environmental requirements
