NHBC is now an Education and Skills Funding Agency-approved provider of apprenticeships.
The company has welcomed the first trainees to its Construction Site Supervisor (CSS) apprenticeship which has been designed with employers to reflect their specific needs.
NHBC apprenticeships will be delivered by the company’s training team whose qualified tutors have decades of construction and coaching experience between them.
Darryl Stewart, NHBC’s Head of Training and Analysis, said: “This is an exciting new chapter for NHBC and we look forward to training builders of the future who will commit to high standards throughout their careers.
“Our apprenticeships provide a first rung on the ladder, along with a solid understanding of the issues and opportunities facing the industry.
“We chose Construction Site Supervisor as our initial apprenticeship to underscore the vital role that site supervisors and managers play in the delivery of high-quality new homes.
“Our years of experience and data demonstrate that a great site manager makes a very positive impact on quality standards.”
Next year the NHBC company will launch a second apprenticeship in bricklaying.
