Tamworth Training Hub

Our first purpose-built training hub is a unique learning space

Open since May 2021, our Tamworth Training Hub was the first of its kind. It was built in partnership with Redrow and Tamworth Borough Council, with input from an industry working group.

Tamworth supports more than 100 apprentices annually all of whom benefit from the  purpose-built facilities in a realistic working environment. The site is next to an active Redrow development and resembles a typical site compound, with a large covered central space for practical work alongside high-specification classrooms and welfare facilities.  

"We know that frequent changes to site location and the travel implications this brings acts as a barrier for many in completing their apprenticeship. In providing this long-term training hub we are providing stability and security for many people." - Karen Jones, Group HR Director at Redrow

This Level 2 accelerated apprenticeship will typically take 18 months to complete.
