Since 2000, we have recruited 407 apprentices and our retention rate is 97%, but our commitment to training for the industry started much earlier, and since 1937 Seddon has helped over 3,567 people start their career in construction.
Seddon employs apprentices of all ages, supporting them as they work towards professional and trade competence. Practical work-related tasks, which develop the skills and knowledge to do the job effectively, are supplemented by short courses and training is undertaken on a day release and block release basis through local colleges and universities, usually over a period of 3 to 5 years.
In addition to your qualification, you will be:
- Working alongside a qualified mentor, day to day
- Coached by your line manager
- Supported by our training department
- Working four days a week, with day release for college
