Westleigh

Multi-trade students given a glimpse of the construction industry

Leading housebuilder Westleigh Homes has given a talk to construction students from a local college and invited them for a tour of its St Mary’s Park development in Leicester to provide an insight into work in the industry.

A total of 35 Level 3 Built Environment learners, followed by a group of Levels 1, 2 and 3 Bricklaying, Plastering, and Carpentry and Joinery pupils from Leicester College, were given a presentation by Mark Dixon, the Senior Site Manager who oversees work on the collection of two, three and four-bedroom homes close to the city’s thriving centre.

Leading developer’s apprenticeship schemes lay foundations for a successful career in construction

Westleigh

Westleigh is calling on young people who dream of stepping onto the construction industry ladder to discover the fantastic apprenticeship schemes it has to offer.

Throughout National Apprenticeship Week, which runs from Monday 5th to Friday 9th March, the leading developer is promoting its bricklaying and joinery apprenticeship schemes for 2018.

The programme, which takes up to three years to complete, will see trainees split their time between studying in college and getting hands-on experience at one of Westleigh’s construction developments across the Midlands or beyond.
