Bourne-based house-builder and development organisation Larkfleet Homes has made another investment in the future of the construction industry.

The company has just taken on its latest intake of young apprentices.

Larkfleet is helping three budding young construction students gain invaluable experience whilst they study as part of a CITB (Construction Industry Training Board) apprenticeship scheme.

All three apprentices will work with Larkfleet’s sub-contractors on developments across the East of England and East Midlands.

Henry Ball is studying bricklaying, Niall Herbert is studying to be an electrician and Jamie Bingham is aiming to be a plumber.

All three will mix practical work on Larkfleet sites with study at Stamford College.

The CITB apprenticeship scheme combines studying at college with on-site experience over a two to three year period. As part of their apprenticeships, the students will achieve an NVQ or SVQ qualification in their chosen study subject.

Joint managing director Helen Hick, who is also HR director of parent organisation The Larkfleet Group of Companies, said: “We are committed to investing in the future of young people and have been running construction apprenticeships for many years.

“I’m delighted we are able to help these students gain on-site experience and expertise, which will give them an excellent start to their careers in construction.”
