LMB currently offers both brickwork and scaffolding apprenticeships in order to bring the next generation of tradesmen into the construction industry.
Hatherall-Good brings 25 years of experience in construction and education and will be charged with developing LMB’s programme further and capitalising on the recent change in the pathway of apprenticeship funding that gives employers greater flexibility on delivering the training that they need.
LMB’s award winning programmes combine behavioural coaching and up to the minute technical instruction.
The training offered goes beyond current apprenticeship requirements with specialist modules focussing on modern methods of construction, fire safety and quality assurance.
LMB’s brickwork apprentices spend four days on site gaining real hands on experience and one day at college while apprentice scaffolders follow a more staged block release programme.
Hatherall-Good is currently looking after 26 brickwork and 9 scaffold apprentices and has students working on sites such as Oval Village Vauxhall with Berkeley Homes and Chelsea Barracks for Multiplex.
Many of the company’s current apprentices are from Brooklands College where he worked for over 8 years as Head of Construction Curriculum and as a bricklaying tutor.
The next step for LMB will be to open their own training centre that would be at the forefront of brickwork and scaffolding training in the UK and Hatherall-Good is in the process of looking at funding and accreditation for this.
