Carpentry and Joinery Apprenticeships

Postby AJC Carpentry » Wed Dec 06, 2017 11:40 am

Hi,

I'm looking for anyone who is interested in doing a carpentry/joinery apprenticeship?

I'm working with AJC Carpentry who are looking to hire anyone who wants to learn and earn at the same time.

If you are interested, please let me know,

Thanks

Dave

Why oh why don't the government encourage more companies like this?
My sister recently spent some time at the Rolls Royce factory at Goodwood. She was told that when the company opened the factory twelve years ago they were astounded that there was no apprenticeship scheme in place in the UK. They employed a number of apprentices and they today are teaching the new apprentices.

Most building companies that I know of in and around East Anglia have moved over to using su-contract staff to do their work and don't bother to invest in training direct labour anymore. They bring in office based staff to manage projects, improve profit and cut costs and out goes the direct labour and apprenticeships. The perceived idea is to be more economic by cutting direct labour and only paying for labour when you need it by using su-contractors.

Most companies I know who have active apprenticeship schemes are really solid companies with longevity.

Now that we have moved to larger premises - i’ll Be running the same scheme I received all those ago.

I think that the word 'longevity' is the thing - invest today for tomorrow.

Your apprenticeship scheme is brilliant. It's great to come across such an enlightened company. You might also like to post over on ukworkshop.co.uk and thewoodhaven2.co.uk.

All the best with your scheme
