Apprentice intake creates 22 jobs at construction group

CCG Group, the Glasgow-based housebuilder, has taken on 22 employees aged 16 and over as this year’s intake of trade apprentices.

Five bricklayers, six plumbers, seven joiners, three electricians and a heating engineer have been positioned across various companies from within CCG Group.

Each will undergo a four-year training programme where they will acquire practical and theoretical skills for use in the trade before qualifying with a recognised and respected qualification.

The new intake takes to 70, the number of apprentices at the business, representing more than 10 per cent of the company’s workforce.

The new apprentices have been immediately placed on live construction projects, with support and guidance from an experienced site mentor.

Alastair Wylie, chairman and chief executive of CCG, said the company’s apprenticeship programme had been a key element of the business since day one.

“Our apprentices are viewed as one of our greatest assets, bringing fresh enthusiasm, life skills and knowledge to the company. Many of them go on to work for us once they have qualified,” he said.

Eleven of CCG’s apprentices celebrated their graduation from the in-house apprentice programme this year.
