New training centre and interview process makes G&H Group’s 2018 intake of apprentices the best equipped ever

G&H Group’s 2018 intake of apprentices is set to be the best equipped ever thanks to the opening of a new in-house training centre and the high standard of candidates.

Twelve apprentices started at the beginning of September and have already impressed with their enthusiasm, willingness to learn and grasp of basic skills.

They are split across the Group with eight in the Building Services division, two in Fabrication and one each in Maintenance and Air Conditioning.

The Group’s new Apprentice Training Centre offers more of a hands-on approach to learning than ever before.

It is split into different booths covering a range of mechanical and electrical services giving apprentices more time on the tools so they can develop skills at a faster rate and practice as if on a live site.

Contracts Manager at the G&H Group, Paul Churchill, said: “The detailed, three-stage interview process we introduced this year has resulted in a high quality of apprentices and we are really excited by the potential of this year’s intake.

“When this is coupled with our newly developed Apprentice Training Centre, we expect this cohort to be the best equipped ever when they complete their courses.”

Spanning four years, apprentices are given the chance to try a variety of activities and learn new skills they can draw on for the rest of their careers.

The G&H Group works closely with Leeds College of Building and supports its apprentices throughout their training; teaching news skills, mentoring and helping them forge fulfilling careers.

They also spend time with the Group’s different divisions and experience regular site visits to widen their knowledge and understanding.
