NHBC celebrates apprentices achieving fully qualified status

18th January 2023

Five NHBC apprentices including Kai Green and Brad Lines who trained with Redrow have successfully completed their apprenticeships at the NHBC Training Hub in Tamworth.


The first of its kind, the Training Hub was built in partnership with Redrow and Tamworth Borough Council in 2020. Since then, 343 apprentices have progressed through its programmes.


Based on our Amington Green site, the centre resembles a typical site compound, with a large covered central space for practical work alongside high-specification classrooms. The industry leading courses have been designed with input from across the sector to ensure apprentices meet the needs of employers and employees alike.


Supporting the next generation of housebuilders with technical training and qualifications. Geoff Mann, NHBC qualifications manager, comments: “Apprenticeships in bricklaying and site supervision are fantastic pathways into a rewarding and well-paid career in the house-building industry, and we’re delighted to see the first apprentices to achieve fully qualified status.


“Through our trade and technical training and qualifications, we are committed to supporting the next generation of house builders, equipping them with the skills to build high-quality new homes.”


Prinal Shah, apprenticeship and new entrants manager at Redrow said: “Being our first Redrow bricklaying apprentice to achieve his full qualification through the NHBC Training Hub is a fantastic achievement for Kai. Credit goes to both Kai and NHBC for their ongoing support in ensuring Kai has the correct knowledge, skills and behaviours to have a successful career in bricklaying.


“This intensive apprenticeship programme is proving to be the right choice to help individuals looking to enter this area of construction, as well as supporting the skills shortage the industry currently faces.”


“Everyone at Redrow is delighted for Brad and being the first finisher is a testament to all the hard work he has done to achieve this qualification.


“The Level 4 CSS apprenticeship has been a great option for those looking to progress to a Site Supervisor role at a time when we not only want to get more people into construction but also support those already in the industry to progress.”
