Pro-active Safety partnered with Hartlepool based Brickwork Services Ltd and Newcastle based Northern Construction Training to offer 60 bricklaying apprenticeships in the Tees Valley. Under the umbrella of newly formed Pro-active Training Ltd the apprentices are based in the newly refurbished training centre in Prospect Way Hartlepool.

During the Apprenticeship, students will spend 4 weeks in the Training centre, gaining their valuable theory work, and hands on trowel skills before being sent out onto site to put their skills to good use. Once on site they will spend 4 weeks building their practical skills, working side by side with experienced and qualified bricklayers who have taken them under their wing.

The 4 week rotation on site, and in the centre will continue for the rest of the year until the Apprenticeship is complete and will gain NVQ 2 in Bricklaying and their Diploma Level 2 in Bricklaying.

When the Apprenticeship is complete, the students will have an Opportunity to gain Full time Employment within the Construction Industry, an opportunity many training providers cannot offer learners.
