Lee Marley Brickwork is considering plans to set up its own training centre as its apprentice numbers continue growing

Recently employed Apprentice Training Manager Christian Hatherall-Good is currently looking after 35 apprentices with students working on sites including Oval Village Vauxhall with Berkeley Homes and Chelsea Barracks for Multiplex.

Hatherall-Good said: “I believe that training on the job through an apprenticeship is the best way to learn. You can earn a wage while learning.

“I believe that real life learning is important, but cannot be all of the learning, as apprentices need to have the opportunity in a college or training centre to practice new skills, gain knowledge and have the opportunity to make mistakes, without it being detrimental to the build of the project and time constraints.”

LMB Managing Director Lee Marley added: “As a former apprentice bricklayer I appreciate the opportunities that a quality apprenticeship can offer. It is also essential for the construction industry to encourage young talent into the sector and focus on evolving skills in order to improve productivity.”

The company has formed partnerships with Brooklands College, for brickwork, and the CITB, for scaffolding.

This allows them to incorporate their own syllabus into the apprentice’s curriculum meaning that they are fully prepared to meet the changing needs of the construction industry.

Naomi Hamilton, 19, has just completed her bricklaying apprentice NVQ2 and will be beginning her NVQ Level 3 shortly, after that she’d look to getting her gold CSCS card and one day would like to be a supervisor.

Her advice to others looking to get into the construction industry is  Don’t give up, keep at it, your hard work will be rewarded.

“Ask questions, you’ll find solutions which you can apply to your work. Keep building your skillset – challenge yourself. If you’re a female don’t be afraid, believe in yourself and prove people wrong, you can do this in a male orientated industry.”
