Plymouth apprentices from Construction Training South West visit Barratt Homes' North Prospect site
A NATIONAL house builder in charge of a multi-million pound regeneration in the city has opened its doors to prospective apprentices.
As the industry recognises this week's National Apprenticeship Week, Students from Construction Training South West Ltd visited the Barratt Homes site at North Prospect.
The students had a site induction visit on health and safety, carried out by assistant site manager Chris Braley.
The purpose of the visit was to give the students a taste of the real world of construction on a well-run building site.

The group of second-year students was made up of those studying for level two diplomas in bricklaying, plastering, and wall tiling.
David Mallett, tutor and assessor liaison manager for Construction Training South West said: "I set up the visit to give our students a taste of what working on a building site is like and to ease the shock of a first day of employment.
"The students are being trained at our well-equipped centre by experienced tutors.
"The tour was an eye opener for students and we couldn't have chosen a better site to visit – it is so well run in all aspects of health and safety.
"Barratt's has said they would give all the help they can to the centre and to the students to try to get work experience placements which may lead to apprenticeships.
"We are really grateful to Barratt's and indeed all of the other major contractors who have helped to get this young generation into the work place."
