We were thrilled to host the Principal of Accrington and Rossendale College, Amanda Melton, during National Apprenticeships Week this week as she went ‘back to the floor’ at our joiners workshop to gain a greater understanding of our business.

Accrington and Rossendale College currently have 350 Apprentices across a wide range of industry sectors who are supporting employers and the local economy,  we currently have 8 Apprentices from the college employed in a range of trades including Carpentry and Joinery, Brickwork, Plastering and Groundwork.

Gary Clarkson, Managing Director at Rosslee Construction, said: “We’ve been employing Apprentices from Accrington and Rossendale College for over 30 years as they are valued assets to the company, who contribute greatly to its performance. One of the site managers started out as a College Apprentice, so there are always progression opportunities after completing an Apprenticeship.”

We appreciate the strong relationship which we have with the college and look forward to taking on more apprentices next year.
