and Yorkshire East are continuing its positive work to support local employment.

They have done this by employing eight apprentices onto the country’s first-ever residential programme to develop local talent in the construction industry.

The leading housebuilder, which is based in York, has employed eight new apprentices aged 16 – 22 years, specialising in bricklaying and carpentry.

The residential courses, at Stephenson College in Coalville, Leicestershire offer 18-month programmes for aspiring bricklayers and carpenters to achieve their Level Two qualifications.

Upon completing the first 3-week residence at Stephenson College, the apprentices will have sufficient skills to contribute to work on sites across , Stamford Bridge, Skelton and Harrogate.

After 18-months spent combining residential and on-site work, in addition to a final exam, each apprentice will become a fully qualified Level Two bricklayer or carpenter. The carpentry apprentices will also be given an opportunity to continue their residential courses for a further 12-months to complete a Level Three qualification.

Steve Mattinson, Construction Director at Developments Yorkshire East, said;

“The construction industry is continuing to grow and this is an exciting time for anyone with an interest in housebuilding to join a market-leading company. As one of the country’s top developers, we are absolutely committed to developing raw talent and I am proud of the opportunities we are able to provide, as well as the fantastic employees we have gained as a result of apprenticeships.”
