Bloor Homes celebrated the graduation of Apprentices

Our apprentices from across the UK have been recognised recently in graduation ceremonies.

21/11/2017 - Careers

Eighteen apprentices from bricklaying and carpentry trades were presented with their Advanced Apprenticeship certificates which recognise the achievement of an NVQ Level 3 in their chosen trade.

The 18 were among the 86 apprentices recruited by Bloor Homes across its seven regions since the apprentice scheme was launched by the owner, John Bloor in 2014.

Each of the apprentices splits their time between working on Bloor Homes developments and attending their local college. 

Those who have demonstrated outstanding skills and commitment during their apprenticeship have been selected to continue their career path with Bloor Homes.  Others plan to continue to work in their trade or make the move towards site management.

A total of three graduation events were held in Staffordshire, Northamptonshire and Wiltshire and each of the apprentices and their families were invited to a lunch hosted by the Regional Managing Director, the Regional Construction Director and the Regional Apprentice Masters. 

The overwhelming message from the apprentices at the ceremonies was one of pride and a sense of achievement at having completed their qualification. 

Steve Ellis, Apprentice Master in the Southern region commented; “I am delighted to be celebrating the accomplishments of my apprentices and the hard work that has seen them achieve their NVQ Level 3.  They have been working hard whilst on site and the knowledge they have gained will take them on in their careers."

Regional Managing Director John Lusty said, “Each of these graduation ceremonies are testament to Bloor Homes’ investment in future talent across the housebuilding sector.  All the successful apprentices have worked hard and applied themselves and are now able to celebrate their well-deserved success.  With the help and guidance they have received from their Apprentice Masters, they have not only gained a trade skill, but invaluable life skills."
