With the Government’s commitment to increasing the quality and quantity of apprenticeships in England, reaching three million starts in 2020, one keen apprentice has just achieved his apprenticeship in carpentry through Higgins Construction.
Working with local communities is at the core of Higgins Construction’s business and at every project the company engages with local schools and colleges to offer bespoke educational initiatives which will suit the age and ability of the pupils in question. The aim is to show that the construction industry is more than just ‘bricks and mortar’; it’s about community values and creating a lasting legacy that local people can be part of.
