Cross-Industry Construction Apprenticeship Task Force (CCATF)

The FMB believes firmly in supporting businesses that invest in the future workforce by taking on and training apprentices. Apprenticeships combine practical training with college learning so a good balance of technical skills and workplace experience is achieved. This has benefits for you, the employer, as well as the apprentice. Apprenticeships also help to ensure a successful and prosperous future for the construction industry and provide valuable employment opportunities for young people.

The FMB also gets involved in National Apprenticeship Week every year to help raise the profile of apprenticeships and ensure high quality apprenticeships continue to be used and valued by young people and UK businesses.
