Group SCS is a great believer in apprenticeships and has helped a number of people get into the construction industry via apprenticeship schemes. We believe that apprenticeships can really have a positive effect on individuals, businesses and the economy.
What is an apprenticeship?
An apprenticeship is a scheme that lets you combine both experience and qualifications, helping you kickstart your career. Most apprentices study for one day a week and work at a company, such as ours, for the rest of the week. This means you can earn while learning and working toward your qualification.
The Group SCS apprenticeships
In the past, we have worked with a number of fantastic education providers including South Thames College and Bridgend College to provide apprenticeships. Depending on the level of your own personal apprenticeship, it usually takes one to four years to complete the scheme.
What our former apprentices say
Read what some of our former apprentices have to say about their time at Group SCS.
“I found my apprenticeship to be an excellent learning experience. I’ve gained experience and skills that I don’t think I would have if I had gone the traditional academic route”
"The apprenticeship scheme at Group SCS has helped me gain knowledge in college studies whilst progressing in my day to day work in the office. I’ve received a great deal of support and guidance from colleagues in work along with support with college work when required, overall a great experience and look forward to my future within the Group."
“I knew I didn’t want to go to college full time. My apprenticeship was perfect for me as I could do college and work”
“It took a while to get the necessary course criteria covered at work, but I am happy with the end result and believe the effort was well worth it”
“My favourite part of my job is being consistently challenged to come up with solutions to problems due to each project being unique. I find I work best when working in a team and I enjoy learning from the more experienced members of the team”
