Trade Apprentice Programme

You’ve got the passion, you’ve got the ambition and you’ve got the determination to succeed. What you need now is the opportunity to shine. And we’ve got just the thing.

Why choose between a university/college education, or paid employment – when you can have the best of both worlds, and a little bit more besides? From the day you start your career with Barratt you can be assured that you will be given every opportunity to progress.  Here at Barratt we will go beyond the standard S/NVQ Syllabus and we will take a personal interest in your development.

Watch Apprentice Site Manager Pete on the video above explain more about a project he and some Trade Apprentices in Southampton have recently been involved with.

Take a look at the Trade Apprentice programme overview below.
