Shaping construction’s future with Apprenticeships and Work Experience schemes

Apprenticeships Working Together Celebration

It’s an exciting time to be part of the Maxiflow family! We are currently engaged in two important schemes which are helping to introduce young people to the construction industry.

The National Apprenticeship Service has helped us to discover talented young individuals from West Cheshire College and Mid-Cheshire College who have shown a passion for building and joinery.

We are proud to report that our apprentice Floyd has completed his first year with us, and his first year at West Cheshire College! We have featured his progress throughout the year on this blog, from his introduction to the company through being named Employee of the Month back in October.

Pictured below is director of Maxiflow Building Services Warren Beatty presenting Floyd with his Level 1 Key Skills in Communication certificate, a well-deserved celebration of a year’s hard work.

We would like to publicly congratulate Floyd and thank him for his excellent job performance!

At any age, it can be difficult to figure out a career for yourself. It can be especially tricky in high school, when the working world seems a million years away!

In conjunction with Working2gether we are delighted to reveal that we have undertaken the first stages of a brilliant new work experience scheme.

The term ‘work experience’ can conjure images of high school students arbitrarily assigned to shops, offices and other industries which may be entirely unsuited to their interests. This scheme aims to match students to a wide range of business types, which can help to foster their hobbies into professions.

The scheme is designed to encourage young people to apply their skills to a practical working environment. This is especially useful to students who are interested in jobs within the building trade, as the satisfaction that comes from creating something with your own hands can be appreciated first-hand.

This week, we have taken aboard a student named Tom from Upton High School in Chester. Tom has a keen interest in construction, particularly joinery and other forms of woodworking.

During his induction, Tom successfully completed two of our online training modules, achieving 86% in Asbestos Awareness and an incredible 100% in Manual Handling!

We will do our best to encourage Tom’s obvious natural talent during his time at Maxiflow and wish him the best of luck!
