CoTrain will recruit and employ apprentices on demand and according to your specification. We manage all payroll and HR admin for that young person so you don’t have to.
Contractors can ‘host’ an apprenticeship placement for an agreed period of time (minimum of 16 weeks) often for the duration of packages, providing them with the help they need and only when they need it. This can assist in meeting training targets that might otherwise be unachievable if not for sharing apprentices.
Contractors are invoiced a monthly recharge to recover the cost for the apprentices that they are ‘hosting’ placements for.
CoTrain works with:
Willmott Dixon - Mace - Morgan Sindall - Galliford Try
Bouygues - Osborne - Kier - Midas - KB Brickworks
NH Etheridge - Carlton Civil - Reading Borough Council
Wokingham Borough Council - Southampton City Council
Beard - Taylor Wimpey - Dawnus - Wates - Baram
Blanchard Wells - Sir Robert McAlpine
Often, training and apprenticeship targets on large developments can be passed down to the supply chain from the lead contractor, requiring them to employ an apprentice for the duration of the package on site.
The Shared Scheme can provide a solution to Contractors who are working ‘out of area’ by recruiting an apprentice on a short-term contract, helping to meet ‘local’ recruitment targets on project sites that out of their traditional recruitment area, also helping to overcome self-employed-only status objections.
CoTrain, in partnership with CITB, provides the industry with apprentices in the trades (C&J, bricks, painting & decorating, groundworks for example) and also trainee assistant site managers for both Civil and Construction (apprentice Technicians). CoTrain does not cover M&E or Plumbing apprenticeships at this time.
We can also provide Business Admin apprentices for the construction sector, delivered through a partner training provider.
Host an apprentice placement (from April 2019):
16-17 - £256
18-20 - £342
21-24 - £410
25+ - £432
This will increase in alignment with the national rise in minimum hourly rate each year.
Apprentices are paid directly by CoTrain and the cost is recovered monthly from contractors hosting the placement.
Recharge rate is fixed, making this very easy to write the labour cost into budgets.
