Eighteen bricklaying and carpentry students from Crawley College (formerly Central Sussex College) have been hired as apprentices by the South Thames division of Taylor Wimpey, one of the UK’s largest housing developers.

The new apprentices were all studying full time at the college. Now, as apprentices at one of the leading housebuilders in the country, they will develop their practical skills and gain valuable experience working on site alongside experienced construction experts.

The teams will work together, exclusively under the supervision of master tradesmen, and each apprentice will work towards an NVQ at Level 3 and above. Upon completion of the programme, the students will be qualified in their chosen fields and ready to continue their careers in the construction industry which is currently booming in the South East and in need of skilled workers.

The hires are part of Taylor Wimpey’s new vision for sustainable employment. The company aims to cultivate and develop its workforce, while creating a family feeling among its workforce. The vision of Taylor Wimpey South Thames Production Director David Hill, the new apprentices are directly employed by Taylor Wimpey and will be an integral part of the company, fully on board with its ethos and its commitment to customers and shareholders.

The link with Crawley College is part of a new pilot scheme working directly with local colleges in a programme in which, in the words of David Hill: “Local people build local homes for local communities.”

Taylor Wimpey South Thames had been working with the college since March to launch the new training programme, with a plan to hire 10 bricklaying and 5 carpentry apprentices.

However, after a formal interview process, the recruiters were so impressed with the calibre of students that they expanded the apprenticeship team.

Apprentice Team Manager at Taylor Wimpey South Thames, Fiona Anderson, spoke highly of the Crawley College students, saying: “We were really impressed with everyone we interviewed and although we were originally looking to offer 5 apprenticeships to carpenters, we really could not agree on who not to take, so we decided to take them all!”

New Senior Apprentice Connor Lindsay says: “This is a brilliant opportunity. I am really glad to be working for a big company like Taylor Wimpey, rather than as a subcontractor. There are great opportunities here and I hope to move into management.”

New Apprentice Daniel Briggs says: “I would like to thank Taylor Wimpey for giving me the chance to learn life time skills.”

The new apprentices started on 7th August with inductions across several Site Management teams and team building exercises. After this, official work began on 14th August, with the carpentry apprentices based at Forge Wood in Crawley and the bricklaying apprentices at Kilnwood Vale in Faygate.
