Another Two Apprentices on Their Way to Sustainable Employment
Andrew Scott Ltd in partnership with Cyfle Building Skills Shared Apprenticeship Scheme and supply chain partner Amberwell Engineering, employed two electrical apprentices, Robert James and Jonathan Roberts, both contributing to the Maes Y Gwendraeth School construction project. Following the successful completion of their apprenticeship period, both have gone on to receive offers of full time employment.
Maes Y Gwendraeth School is a multi-million pound 21st century school for Carmarthenshire County Council. A two-phase design and build project includes a new two-storey teaching block and sports hall with significant refurbishments of the existing school, along with an all new 3G sports pitch. The school is designed to BIM Level 2 and to a rating of BREEAM “Excellent”.
“Robert and Jonathan are both a credit to themselves and Cyfle’s Shared Apprentice Scheme. I thank them for the dedication they have shown on our Maes Y Gwendraeth school projects and look forward to working with them in the not too distant future. Well done both”, commented Jamie Costain, Andrew Scott’s Project Manager.
“Both Rob and Jon have been a privilege to work with and they have been exemplary apprentices. Their work ethic from the start has been recognised hence why they have been part of the Maes Y Gwendraeth project with Andrew Scott Ltd from the very beginning. This has progressed into a full time employment opportunity. This is what Cyfle Building Skills encourages all of our 141 apprentices to achieve in addition to their NVQ qualification”, said Rhys Fisher, Cyfle Skills Academy Co-ordinator.
Cyfle Building Skills is a Multi Award Winner Regional Shared Apprenticeship Scheme, that currently employs over 141 apprentices. It is a Shared Apprenticeship Scheme that was launched by South West Wales Regional Shared Apprenticeship Ltd (SWWRSAL) and CITB in 2013 which is currently the largest Shared Apprenticeship Scheme in the UK. The aim is to provide a service which supports young adults into sustainable employment within the construction industry.
