Create Apprenticeships to support our Challenge

This National Apprenticeship Week 2024 CoTrain launched the Create Apprenticeships Challenge encouraging construction companies to create more apprenticeships and help tackle the skills shortage in the sector.


We are aiming to collaborate with partners and create new apprenticeship placements in our region. 

You can join, too. By creating apprenticeship, you will get the workforce you need for your projects, receive recognition as a company contributing to tackling a sector issue, and join a fantastic group of partners committed to positive change. 


Since 2013, CoTrain (a Programme delivered by SECBE, part of the Constructing Excellence network) have supported over 250 apprentices and sites, saved companies’ resources in managing apprentices, and helped them meet their social value objectives.

"CoTrain makes my life a lot easier and less work for me when recruiting a new apprentice. I email the CoTrain team with my requirements and they then do the hard work of trying to find candidates for us. I also trust them that they know what sort of person I am looking for."

Sally Kinchin, Wates Group

We have acquired a wealth of experience in providing flexible apprenticeship services for construction and aiming to do more in 2024.

Do you need a workforce for your projects but are not sure if you have the resources to manage an apprentice?

We are here to take this load off your shoulders by managing apprentices so you focus on the delivery of your projects.

Let us know about your needs


Mark Pope, CoTrain Business Development Manager, will get in touch with you to learn about your company requirements. Don't miss your chance to ask your burning questions.

Mark will be happy to support your project with apprentices straight away, or you will be invited to the next coffee morning to learn more about the Shared Apprenticeship Scheme and how CoTrain can help.


Start following CoTrain's social media pages (see below) where we share our apprentices' stories and case studies from construction companies, highlighting the benefits of hosting an apprentice.

Only together can we reduce the much-discussed skills gap and take the challenge to tackle it!
