Apprenticeships



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.

We regularly have Apprentices selected to represent both their College and Walter Thompson in the Regional SkillBuild competitions with great success.



The Apprenticeship will lead to an NVQ level 3.
