Apprentices & Graduate Trainees
Taylor Hart Limited are committed to helping young people enter into the construction industry, they do this by employing Apprentices and Graduate Trainees. Crucially, once an apprentice achieves their NVQ there are plenty of opportunities available for them to progress further with their career; this being either through site supervision or academic courses in Quantity Surveying or Estimating.
Studying at Birmingham City University
Since September 2014, the company have employed 24 apprentices, 6 of these having already qualified as tradesmen and a further 4 due to complete in June 2018. We currently have 3 Graduate Trainees undertaking a Bachelors Degree or a Higher National Certificate. The trainees are given day release every week to attend their studies at Birmingham City University.
High Priority in 2018
Staff training remains a high priority for the company in 2018 with courses already being secured for staff to attend within the first four months of the year. Employees are able to make requests for training at any time, approval being given if the course is able to develop their learning needs and skills; the training fits well with the company business plan for the next few years ahead.
