NHBC Apprenticeship training hubs

Our purpose-built facilities immerse apprentices in a realistic working environment and get them ready for life on site

Our training hubs are a crucial part of our bricklaying apprenticeship programme. Next to live working sites, they provide a realistic environment for our apprentices to learn their craft. Locations have been chosen for their proximity to a large number of active home building sites.  

Our programmes are front-loaded with the first five weeks spent at one of our Hubs where our bricklaying apprentices learn core practical skills as well as health and safety practices. This means they are ready to return to your sites able to contribute and already used to an outdoor working environment.  

Each hub has a large outdoor concrete slab where apprentices can build substantial structures.
