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 26 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 makes my life a lot easier and less work for me when recruiting a new apprentice. I email the CoTrain team with my requirements and they then do the hard work of trying to find candidates for us. I also trust them that they know what sort of person I am looking for."
Sally Kinchin, Wates Group
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 will now consider M&E or Plumbing apprenticeships.
We can also provide Business Admin apprentices for the construction sector, delivered through a partner training provider.
