Training Hub

Our first purpose-built Training Hub is a unique learning space

We’ve designed our first Training Hub to immerse our apprentices in a realistic working environment and give apprentice bricklayers the chance to build substantial structures on the large covered concrete slab. The Training Hub, which will be able to support more than 100 apprentices annually, is a unique, purpose-built facility, equipped with classrooms, welfare and catering facilities.

The Training Hub supports our commitment to addressing vital skills’ gaps in the industry and it will also help improve a key trade that is integral to building high quality homes.

The Hub has been built with the support from many generous trades and suppliers, as well as in collaboration with an industry working group and Tamworth Council.  The Hub wouldn’t have been possible without Redrow, who have offered substantial, continuous support throughout the project.

The Training Hub opening day

The Training Hub built in partnership with Redrow was opened by Rt Hon. Chris Pincher, Secretary of State for Housing on the 20 May 2021. Take a look at some of the photos of the opening day and our first cohort of Bricklaying Apprentices at the Training Hub.
