Supporting Apprentices in Bispham: Create Homes Invests in Young Talent

Create Homes, a quality housebuilder, is demonstrating its commitment to investing in young talent by supporting apprentices from Blackpool & The Fylde College at its latest housing development in Bispham, near Blackpool. The apprenticeship placements at ‘The Groves’ will provide these young students with valuable knowledge and experience in the construction industry.

Create Homes believes that bringing apprentices into the business is crucial for the development of young professionals and their future success in their chosen careers. The on-the-job training offered by Create Homes will complement the students’ academic studies, giving them the opportunity to gain real-life experience while working alongside industry experts in the construction field.

The new apprentices, Frazer and Jason, are studying construction-related courses at Blackpool & The Fylde College. Fraser, an 18-year-old second-year student, aspires to study construction at university and eventually run his own construction business. Jason, a 16-year-old first-year student, also wants to pursue a degree in construction and have a career in architecture. Both students will complete a 45-day apprenticeship placement with Create Homes to acquire practical skills in their chosen industry.

The apprentices have already been involved in various aspects of house building, including design, engineering, planning, surveying, and quality control. They have also gained knowledge about the practical construction of homes and the trades involved in the process.

Will Prew, Operations Manager at Create Homes, is excited about having Frazer and Jason join the team during this exciting time for the company. He emphasizes the importance of practical experience in combination with college training, highlighting the personal development opportunities the apprentices will encounter, such as improving their communication skills, building relationships, and working in a team.

Create Homes’ apprentices will contribute to the construction of 35 new energy-efficient homes, including popular house types, as well as 16 affordable rental homes. The collaboration with Great Places Housing Group aims to provide much-needed housing for the local community.

Support from Create Homes has been instrumental in preparing the college learners for higher education and ensuring a sustainable career path in the dynamic construction industry, says Rosalind Tsang, School of Construction Programme Leader at Blackpool & The Fylde College.

By investing in the local community and fostering an interest in construction among younger generations, Create Homes is setting a commendable example for other private developers. This strategic investment not only fulfills a social obligation but also contributes to reputation building, talent attraction, and sustainable development in the area.
