Thanks to Procure Plus for getting apprentices on the move

Mar 27, 2013

four trainees Katie and RachelProcurement partner, Procure Plus recognise the difficulties that many young trainees experience in the construction field. Construction is not a regular office based job, and many apprentices struggle to maintain their training when works on a particular project come to a close and they must move on to their next site.

Despite efforts by construction providers to retain people in their local area, its often difficult to get all staff to sites.  So the ability to drive is a real bonus for anyone considering a career in the construction industry.

Procure Plus have offered their construction partners the opportunity to give their top performing trainees a head start, by giving them 20 hours worth of driving lessons and paying for their theory and practical tests.

Last year, Emanuel Whittaker’s apprentice plasterer, Rachel Howarth and Bricklayer, Katie Lockwood were amongst the first intake to benefit from the scheme.  Both Katie and Rachel have recently passed their tests.

This year, another three Emanuel Whittaker apprentices are benefiting from the scheme, and looking forward to getting on the road. Matthew Casey, Rhys Jones and Bradley Healey will shorlty be starting on their driving courses and are hoping to secure their driving licences before the end of the year.  Good luck!
