Hi Danny, would you be interested in taking on an apprentice ? We can either recruit for you or if you have someone in mind we can enrol them onto the apprenticeship.

Plastering takes 2 years
EWI takes 1 year

Apprentices will all be registered for an apprenticeship cscs card so they will be allowed site access.

16-18 is fully funded
19+ employer contribution is required due to lack of funding

CITB will pay a grant of £6000 for plastering apprentice
£3525 for EWI apprenticeship

Thanks

He Was a plasterers labourer 10 years ago and has NO site experience,just a few years spreading.

with our apprenticeships the learner needs to come into out training academy 4 times in a year one is a two week block the other are week blocks over 12 months.

they must come in 8 times over the 2 year term. two weeks to start then again the week blocks to suit employer. inbetween this time an assessor will attend the workplace once or twice a month

I'm 23 mate, pick things up fairly quickly once I'm stuck in and a grafter though, thing is when you're learning a trade, it's exactly that, you're there to learn, money shouldn't be an issue till you know what's what.

I had a 17 year old in July this year. He had been to Geasons in Manchester but had not been taught how to use a hand board and trowel. So no experience what so ever. I had him for 3 weeks at £150 a week and did no labouring.

Most of our work in that 3 week period was machine work so little chance of using a trowel. But he did learn about the machine side.

4th week I paid him for a week back at Geasons and £80 petrol. Did they teach him how to use a hand board and trowel? No. Nvq in English.

He failed to tirn up on the Monday of the 5th week so he had to go. £680 down the drain!

What I suggest to Geason is if they are going to have these lads in their Manchester training cemtre then at least teach them how to fill a hand board up with plaster and then get 1 trowel full off leaving 2 trowel fulls left on. It will be a good start.

Also payments monthly. A lot of lads quit within the 13 week period so usually the contractor pays out with no return.

Now, I will start a trainee off labouring. They will have to cover their wages from day 1. No more paying out wages for training only when they quit before they start to earn pay back.

There is a point above about wages for a trainee. Lads are or may be affordable but a 21 + year old even on nmw will probably not cover his wages as a trainee. There does become an awkward stage when the skill goes up then the wage goes up. But then if the trainee is the labourer as well then there becomes a time when the trainee needs more than a labourers wage but also he doesn't have time to labour anymore.

Firstly we do not sell apprenticeships we place young kids and adults in employment within the construction industry - training providers do not get paid until that person completes their 2 year apprenticeship and secondly we have loads of kids traveling further than Leeds to out training academy.

We do block release as some employers find this more useful than having the apprentice lose a days work to attend college once a week.

There are loads of grants available to employers that hire an apprentice so any employer taking on one shouldn't be out any expense what so ever and if this is the case then you should speak to the college or provider you are with and get them to apply for the grants available to you.

Hope you all have a happy new year and i look forward to speaking to you all again in 2016.
