Anwyl apprentice scheme

We believe in developing our people to have the necessary training and skills to enable them to carry out their roles to the best of their ability.

During employment, we provide each trainee or apprentice with an in-house mentor throughout their training programme. We ensure that all employees hold the requisite training and competences for the work to be undertaken as part of their duties; this includes ensuring, via job descriptions, 100% of our site staff hold the appropriate CSCS card. We currently engage in the National Skills Academy for construction and Built Environment Sustainability Training (BEST) in order to upskill our current workforce including our apprentices and trainees.

We are committed to and fully support shared apprenticeship schemes across the region. Anwyl Construction Director, Tom Anwyl, is currently chair of the shadow board for the North Wales Construction Shared Apprenticeship Scheme which aims to create in excess of 350 construction apprentices over the next five years.

An Anwyl second year Apprentice Joiner, Jordan Arnold, 24, recently competed in the Skill Build Welsh Finals at Deeside College. Jordan currently attends Llandrillo College part time whilst working as a workshop joinery apprentice for Anwyl Construction. Jordan has been working for Anwyl for just 10 months showing exceptional joinery skills, hard work and dedication.

During the competition, Jordan was assigned an eight-hour design and build joinery challenge. After some deliberation, Jordan won the third place bronze trophy.

Jordan said: “I’m extremely proud to have won third place. There was some tough competition and winning shows just how far I have come in ten months of hands-on experience with Anwyl.”

Anwyl Joinery Workshop Manager, Geraint Hughes, said: “We are extremely proud and pleased for Jordan. This is truly excellent considering Jordan has only ten months’ experience within the workshop, which just shows how far he has come showing exceptional natural aptitude for joinery”.

Jordan hopes to progress onto the UK National Finals in Birmingham over the next year.
