We can’t quite believe we’re starting week 4 of the Summer Programme, meaning we’re half way there.  Been a great start by the students who’ve not only made progress in the workshop, but have done really well at participating in team building exercises and fun outdoor activities as well.  It’s been a great few weeks, keep up the great work!!

Great time to start looking ahead to opportunities including full-time courses and apprenticeships.

 

 

 

Literally!  Well done to students from Oxfordshire UTC, Bartholomew School and Cheney school who have done a great job in the carpentry workshop getting some activities ready for the students who are starting our Summer Programme next week.  Nearly 40 signed up!

We’re delighted to be recruiting for TWO Site Carpentry apprenticeship positions in Banbury.  The positions are with Tapper Interiors in Banbury.

You will undertake a Site Carpentry Apprenticeship but it is important for you to understand will not be a traditional construction environment. The company specialises in all types of interior fit-outs for the commercial, industrial and private sectors. You will be working on non-domestic properties including offices, showrooms, shops and warehouses, and will include working at heights.

Applications will ONLY be via this link to ‘Find An Apprenticeship’.  Please do not apply directly to the employer.

 

Less than a week until the start of our annual Summer Programme, with a proven track record in helping ‘early birds’ who’ve just left school progress quicker onto full-time training or apprenticeships.  It’s a great head start for anyone looking to train up in either brickwork or carpentry and we know employers looking for apprentices really value the commitment our summer students show to spend their holiday time getting on the tools and learning.

There’s still time to sign up, contact Sonia King on 01865 3700404 or email [email protected] for more info!
