We support a wide range of trade apprenticeships, which is a way of learning a NVQ construction skill at college whilst gaining supervised work experience at the same time.
We also work in partnership with specialist apprentice organisations, Cyfle (for projects in West Wales) and Y-Prentis (for projects in East Wales), who help us link their registered apprentices to work placement opportunities with our on-site specialist contractors.
Some of our best project managers began their working life as apprentices with us, and have now progressed through the ranks to senior positions, running their own construction projects.

“I joined Andrew Scott Ltd in 2012 with a degree in Architectural Technology. Working with my mentor, it became apparent that the Company required a BIM Coordinator to meet future project requirements. A structured development plan was put in place along with financial support, which has allowed me to achieve a Master Degree in BIM and Sustainability from the University of South Wales.”Chris Wilde, BIM Coordinator
