Barratt Homes take on 3 PM Training apprentices

The three apprentices are James Cassidy, 17, a carpentry apprentice, Aaron Baddeley, 18  and Richard Bailey, 19, both apprentices in bricklaying.
 
James said: “I’m not sure what my plans are after I finish my two year course in carpentry but in the future I would really to become a self employed carpenter.
 
“The apprenticeship at Gloster Gate has been really good so far because you get to work out on site as well as learning at college.”
 
Will Nixon, Chief Executive of PM Training, said: “We’re delighted that Barratt has taken on these three apprentices to help give them a better chance of finding work later on. 
 
“It means local people are gaining work experience as well as helping to regenerate their local communities.”
 
Andrew Dauncey, Project Director at Barratt Mercia, said, “We firmly believe that our role isn’t just to build new homes but to establish strong communities as well, which is why we endeavour to recruit trade apprentices at all our developments and Gloster Gate is no exception.
 
“The apprentices will learn first hand what it’s like to work on a live construction site and gain valuable skills for the future.”
