Travis Perkins have said they are planning to train 10,000 apprentices by 2030 in an attempt to address a “critical industry skills gap.”
Addressing the skills gap will help to develop what is needed to build new homes and infrastructure and the ambition will bring “fresh talent” to the industry.
Nick Roberts, chief executive said, “I am delighted to be announcing this ambitious target to train the next generation of apprentices.
“Ensuring our country is equipped with the right skills to deliver a greener, more sustainable future for our built environment is essential.
“We aim to bring in fresh talent, improve the diversity of our industry and upskill existing colleagues, at a time when net zero and new safety legislation means the building and construction industry is undergoing its biggest shake-up for more than 30 years.”
