West Herts College forms a forward-thinking partnership with Stewart Milne Timber Systems
West Herts College has formed a forward-thinking partnership which will offer students apprenticeships focusing on modern methods of construction. The College has paired up with the Oxfordshire-based branch of Stewart Milne Timber Systems to offer new apprenticeships in construction that will focus on timber frame building solutions to equip young people with the skills they need to succeed in industry.
West Herts College Director John McMahon said: “This is an exciting opportunity for students to progress to an apprenticeship with a forward-thinking company like Stewart Milne Timber Systems.
"Students really stand to benefit from this partnership. They will pick up a modern qualification in an expanding sector while working with an industry leader - especially with the added focus of this program on green, sustainable construction.
Upon successful completion of the apprenticeship, students will be well equipped with a comprehensive understanding of off-site timber frame building solutions and be well prepared for opportunities to directly progress into industry.
David Nimmo, Construction Director at Stewart Milne, said: "The use of sustainable materials such as timber plays a vital role in delivering net zero carbon homes, which is why it’s so important for us to work with education providers like West Herts College, to provide young people with skills for the future.
"We’re excited for the first cohort of students to get started as they embark on a rewarding career in a greener, faster and better way of delivering on the nations’ need for sustainable homes."
