Employers: Hire an Apprentice On-Site
Construction Apprenticeships with a difference
The Directors have had over 14 years experience delivering construction apprenticeships through Further Education Colleges. We have experienced the traditional apprenticeship method and feel that a fresh approach is necessary to move with the modern times.
We run our construction apprenticeships with a difference – our ethos is to minimise disruption to the employer and learner, making the course smoother and learners work ready.
Delivery of our apprenticeships is based on a fresh flexible approach carried out at your place of work and online.
All training is tailored around your company requirements and delivered at your place of work.
This is to ensure the apprenticeship meets both company and learner needs, enhancing and strengthening your initial on-site training, resulting in a joint training programme between us as your provider and yourselves as the employer, making the learner work ready and a benefit to the company both during and after the apprenticeship.
Our fresh approach entails live online theory lessons with a dedicated trainer with an experienced trade background, allowing for interactive sessions and checking of individual learning throughout each session.
At Multi Trades Training Ltd we are dedicated to ensuring the learner and the employer get an excellent service; therefore the Directors are always available for advice and guidance.

Construction Apprenticeships FAQs
How are the apprentices trained?

- One to one training sessions
- Live Online Learning & Webinars

- Site assessment and observations
- Setting and marking assignments
- Group workshops
The apprentice will also carry out the following off the job training:

- Toolbox talks and initial work guidance
- Any additional training provided by the company
- Visits to trade shows or organised events
What is the construction apprenticeship sign up process?
The first part of the process requires an apprenticeship agreement and employment contract between your company and the apprentice – You can download a template contract and an agreement by clicking the links below. These documents will need to be forwarded to firstname.lastname@example.org
Once we have received the contract and agreement, we will send you and the apprentice the forms that need completing and signing electronically.
The apprentice will also need to complete an initial assessment online prior to the apprenticeship commencing. The whole sign up process is short and paperless, with ongoing support as required.
Do the apprentices have to attend college?
No – all of our training and assessment is delivered both on-site and online
Will the apprentice learn less if they do not attend college?
We believe with our model they will learn and achieve more. Our on-site training days are practical hands on sessions tailored to company requirements. The practical training is delivered on your site or in one of our practical training mobile workshops. The theory is delivered via live online interactive sessions with a dedicated expert trainer with trade background experience.
What support can I expect from Multi Trades Training Ltd?
We will provide all necessary ongoing support throughout the apprenticeship with regular progress reviews.
