Apprenticeships – We Pursue Growth

AG are pleased to announce the recent appointment of Apprentice Surveyor, Callum Westhead.

Callum attends Preston College on day release undertaking a BTEC Diploma in Construction and the Built Environment and the apprenticeship runs for a two year period covering 12 modules. The scheme allows apprentices to learn theory and application concurrently and therefore are able to develop a real understanding of the business they are working in. AG’s apprenticeship role also involves working alongside our senior surveyors, having access to a huge amount of knowledge and support.

Andrew Whittle, AG Director commented – “Recruitment for good quality surveyors has been tough and whilst we have always taken on candidates from our local university (University of Central Lancashire), we have now decided to take this a step further and look at local colleges who are offering construction based apprenticeships. One of the Company’s Core Values is – We Pursue Growth –  This pursuit of growth has lead up to develop ‘The AG Academy’, which has been developed to assist our younger staff in personal development and growth.”

Callum Westhead commented – “I have settled in extremely well at AG. I am currently learning to how to use AutoCAD to draw up the buildings and have received continuous support from the team here at AG. I opted for an apprenticeship as it enables me to understand how a business operates and still gain the required qualification at College. I am really looking forward to getting stuck in, gaining experience and developing my current skills at AG”

We look forward to watching Callum progress!
