Building Futures

Our Apprentices

CCG has always been committed to training and developing young people. Our year-on-year commitment to skills replenishment secures the long-term, sustained success of the CCG Group and provides a skill for life.

Our high-quality apprenticeship programme, which presently employs 70 tradespeople across the CCG Group, acts as a solid foundation for our young people to learn, progress and ultimately forge a strong career in the construction industry.

CCG offers a 4-year intensive programme for those 16 and above across trades such as:

  • Bricklaying
  • Joinery
  • Plumbing
  • Heating Engineering
  • Electrician

Our industry-recognised apprenticeship programmes allow our apprentices to work in a live construction environment across various types of projects, ensuring the best mix of theoretical and practical knowledge is obtained throughout the course of their apprenticeship.

The CCG Annual Apprentice Intake took place in August with 22 new trade apprentices joining the company which included five joiners, six plumbers and seven bricklayers as well as three electricians and a heating engineer who are based across various companies from within the CCG Group.

CCG obtained the coveted Investors in Young People Gold Accreditation in 2015, which is a people management standard that focuses on an employer’s recruitment and retention of young people. This represents a true commitment to development and skills replenishment and demonstrates CCG as an employer of choice for young people. The Group can proudly say that it has retained this standard for 2016/17.
