Our third training hub in Cambridge will support the next generation of skilled house builders in the East of England. It will train more than 100 apprentices per year and will immerse apprentices in a realistic working environment adjacent to the Histon Football Club. The training hub is a purpose-built facility, equipped with classrooms, welfare and catering facilities.

Built in partnership with Hill, these training hubs form part of our ongoing commitment to support the next generation of house builders, equipping them with the skills to build high quality new homes. The scheme will train apprentices all year round with numerous cohort intakes throughout the year.

Groundworker apprenticeship

Groundworkers are the first trades on any construction site and their work is fundamental to preparing the site for new homes to be built. This Level 2 accelerated apprenticeship will typically take 18 months to complete. Apprentices will split their time between blocks of training at our unique training hubs (initially at Tamworth) alongside onsite delivery with their employer.
