National Apprentice Week 2019 - Career Pathways

We are proud of all of our Apprentices both past and present, and so we are delighted to celebrate National Apprentice Week 2019 here at Thorpes.

We are fortunate to have trained apprentices since our inception over 70 years ago, as we firmly believe they provide fantastic opportunities for growth both personally and professionally which opens many career pathways for the future.

Many of those who have completed apprenticeships chose to remain with us, and we spoke to some from different parts of our company to find out first-hand how an apprenticeship has benefited them.

Take a look at their timelines below:

So where can an Apprenticeship in Construction take you?

Well, we believe with commitment and hard work, they can take you just about anywhere you want to go in the industry, as proven by the two journeys above - both Simon and Scott started in similar positions but have taken up roles in completely differing departments, highlighting the wonderful variation available in our industry.

Thorpes is the perfect example of this, with apprentices in various factory and office departments from bench joiners through to designers.

If you’re interested in an apprenticeship with us here please do get in touch below, we would love to hear from you.
