At DWG we are committed to the future of our industry and have a great apprenticeship scheme for bricklayers. We partner with local colleges adjacent to our larger projects and work with these institutions to help provide apprenticeships/work placements.
In 2015, we actively searched for 2 apprentices to join our workforce on our site in Isleworth. We contacted a local college in Richmond who put forward several candidates for a work placement. After their initial work experience placement, Cain & Reece were offered a formal apprenticeship with DWG because they demonstrated a commitment to their studies and job as well as a real interest in Bricklaying.
Our apprentice training programme provides real opportunities to begin a lifelong career of full-time work in a rewarding job with excellent future prospects. This is a block-release course with some time spent away at one of CITB's training centres and supervised work on site. Their progress is regularly assessed by the CITB who report accordingly. After two years, the successful candidate becomes a competent scaffolder and receives a CISRS NVQ2 scaffold card (with the opportunity to later progress to achieve the CISRS NVQ3 advanced card).
