Walter Thompson working closely with Construction Skills and local colleges is offering a structured 3 year apprenticeship in the traditional building trades of Brickwork and Joinery.

Our established Apprenticeship programme has been running for over 50 years and many of our Apprentices have gone on to progress and develop to management positions within our company. We are proud to maintain a high level of in-house trade skills.

Our Apprenticeship scheme integrates what we believe to be the key aspects to a successful Apprenticeship programme; education, the work environment and personal development.

New Apprentices joining us in 2015 were; Henry Stamp, Joe Martin (Joiners), Jake Ashton and Ryan Wilshere (Bricklayers).

Two Apprentices have been selected to represent their College and Walter Thompson in the Regional SkillBuild competition in May 2016 – Jonathon Bernhardt (Joiner) and James Anderson (Bricklayer) who are currently in the third year of their Apprenticeships.

James Andserson and Ryan Wilshere will also represent their college's and Walter Thompson's at the Guild of Bricklayers competition.

The Apprenticeship will lead to an NVQ level 3.
