At an open day at Kensington & Chelsea College in December, we started recruiting for three painting and decorating apprentices.
The open day was an opportunity for local young people (aged 18-24) to sign up for the pre-apprenticeship programme. This offers two weeks of employability skills training, construction industry certification (CSCS) and on-site work experience.
Ten candidates came to the open day and completed a range of numeracy, literacy and IT tests.
Catalyst Gateway is working in partnership with Kensington & Chelsea College and Ardmore Construction on this new apprenticeship programme.
