The London Borough of Hounslow is helping local people to launch their careers and improve their skills through an award-winning apprenticeship scheme in partnership with East Berkshire College.

Leading by example, the Council is a big advocate of apprenticeships and currently employs 27 apprentices, aged 17 to 51, in its property repairs and contracts teams. As well as expanding their knowledge and qualifications, the apprentices help to maintain over 16,000 homes across the borough.

The London Borough of Hounslow’s multi-award winning apprenticeship programme provides the apprentices with the opportunity to gain qualifications in a wide range of sectors including construction trades and business. Now in its fourth year, the scheme is going from strength to strength, recently winning Apprenticeship Company of the Year 2016 at the Spark Awards.

John Laparte (aged 20) is one of the individuals who started a carpentry apprenticeship through the Council and the College last September:

“Apprenticeships are good because they prepare you for real life and help you develop real skills. I have a mentor who is really good at explaining things and has helped build my confidence. Each day is different. I can be doing anything from general repairs to changing a front door. Every day, I feel that I am taking a step towards my future and working for the council makes me feel like I’m giving something back to the community as well.”

With apprenticeships now available from intermediate (Level 2) right through to higher apprenticeships (Level 4/5) and degree level, becoming an apprentice isn’t just for school leavers either.

Daniel Twyford (aged 34) is a multi-trade apprentice in the repairs and response team at the Council. Having worked as a carpenter at the Council for 13 years, he mentors new apprentices like John as well as adding to his own skills by undertaking a multi-trade apprenticeship.

Daniel explains: “The apprenticeship has given me the chance to expand my knowledge by going back to college. I was already a qualified carpenter, but now I’ve been able to gain skills in other areas such as bricklaying and roof tiling, which has given me more confidence to tackle a wider range of jobs at work. As a mentor, I’m also passing on my knowledge to other apprentices, who are just starting out.”

Sharon Nicholls, Trade Apprenticeship Co-ordinator at The London Borough of Hounslow, explains: “As a council, we are dedicated to supporting apprenticeships and providing local people with the chance to gain employment and skills. Our apprentices are really enjoying the chance to continue their learning and, as well as their studies at college, we provide additional in-house training, including courses in manual handling, first aid and money matters. All mentors also undertake a mentor training, so they know how to effectively support an apprentice.

“East Berkshire College works very much in partnership with us to tailor training to our needs, particularly with our more experienced employees. For example, the College organised for all the functional maths and English element of the course to be completed first, so our apprentices can now focus on their industry qualifications. We chose to work with the College because they were able to deliver the range of apprenticeship qualifications we required, now and in the future. Over the next few years, we hope to continue to expand our apprenticeship scheme, particularly in terms of higher level apprenticeships.”

The Council promotes apprenticeships both internally and externally throughout the borough. Through its 106 agreements with developers, it encourages and supports developers to hire apprentices.

Further demonstrating its commitment to investing in its employees and local residents, the Council is also working with East Berkshire College in Langley to upskill its team of caretakers. The College, which has been delivering apprenticeships for over 40 years, has devised a special training programme for 12 caretakers employed by the Council.

As well as the more traditional trade-based apprenticeships, East Berkshire College offers a range of apprenticeships in areas such as Business Administration, Accounting, Science, Engineering and Hospitality & Catering. An increasing range of new higher apprenticeships (Level 4) are also available, offering a more affordable and convenient alternative to university.

East Berkshire College, which has campuses in Langley and Windsor, has over 40 years of experience in delivering high quality training to SMEs and multi-nationals in a wide range of industries.

Paradigm Housing Group is helping young people take their first steps on the career ladder with an apprenticeship scheme through East Berkshire College.

The leading housing provider, which has a head office in High Wycombe, is a big advocate of apprenticeships and currently employing nine apprentices in its property maintenance teams. The apprentices, who are aged between 20 and 24, are being trained in the workplace by Paradigm’s experienced professionals and attend Langley College one day a week to achieve their qualifications. As part of the company’s 440 strong team, they are helping to manage almost 14,000 homes for around 25,000 people.

Steve Pink, Electrical Manager at Paradigm, explains: “To ensure our high levels of customer service, we believe it is important to invest in our staff and grow our own employees, who will stay and develop with us. Apprenticeships are a great, flexible way to find new talent and provide our new recruits with a solid range of skills.

“We chose to work with East Berkshire College because of their experience in delivering the variety of apprenticeships we needed. We were extremely pleased by the quality of the candidates we had applying for our apprentice roles, which reflects how popular apprenticeships have become. Our apprentices have settled in well and we have received lots of great feedback from customers about them.”

Samantha White (aged 24), who is undertaking an Intermediate Apprenticeship in Maintenance Operations, was a delivery driver before joining Paradigm to pursue a career in the construction industry.

“I never thought I’d go back to college, but starting my apprenticeship with Paradigm has been the best decision I’ve made. Some tenants I visit are surprised to see a woman doing plumbing and maintenance jobs, but many actually feel more comfortable dealing with a female.”

She adds: “I’m really enjoying my work. I’m learning skills that I’ll be able to use for the rest of my life and every day is different, from hanging gates and repairing fencing to fixing taps and replacing pipes. An apprenticeship gives you more of an incentive to study because you understand the importance of what you are learning.”

Fellow apprentice, Joshua Horton (aged 21) agrees. Having taken his A Levels and worked for a spell as a dispenser in a pharmacy, Joshua wanted to do something more practical and applied for the Maintenance Multi-trade Level 2 Apprenticeship with Paradigm.

“My apprenticeship has changed my life completely”, enthused Joshua. “I’ve found a job I really enjoy. I go to college one day a week and the rest of the time I’m learning on the job. It’s a great balance. I look forward to going into college as everything I’m learning is helping me progress at work. I’m now working as part of Paradigm’s kitchen and bathroom team, and would like to develop my carpentry skills.”

For employers like Paradigm, apprenticeships are a great way to develop a skilled and motivated workforce, ensuring there are no future skills gaps. For young people, apprenticeships provide an excellent opportunity to gain experience, a qualification and a real career path.

Tim Harris (aged 22), who is in his second year of an Electrotechnical Level 3 Apprenticeship, explains: “As an apprentice, I pick things up much faster. I’m learning from professional people with years of experience and they are really supportive, which has made me more determined to progress and better myself.”

As well as the more traditional trade-based apprenticeships, East Berkshire College offers a range of apprenticeships in areas such as Business Administration, Accounting, Science, Engineering and Hospitality & Catering. An increasing range of new higher apprenticeships (Level 4) are also available, offering a more affordable and convenient alternative to university.

Sohail Boston, who is studying a bricklaying level two course at Langley College, explains:

"The new construction facilities are just like being on a real building site. I'm learning so much and gaining real work experience on a real full-size project. I want to be a qualified bricklayer and eventually progress on to a higher level management course, so this is great preparation for the future."

Prospective student Ben Felstead (aged 15) attended the event to find out about courses in motor vehicle and electrical engineering.

"Everyone was really helpful and friendly at the Open Day. I was given lots of useful advice about course options from staff and got to talk to students, who gave us a guided tour of the building. I was very impressed with the College, particularly the workshops and main entrance."

East Berkshire College continues to go from strength to strength in terms of raising standards and has recently completed a £30m refurbishment of its Langley College to provide state-of-the-art learning facilities for current and future students. These improvements included new commercial hair and beauty salons, a sports centre and a Hospitality & Catering Academy.

Christopher Horsburgh, a carpentry student at East Berkshire College, is celebrating after triumphing in the regional heat of SkillBuild – the UK’s largest multi-trade competition.


Christopher (17, from Windsor) beat candidates from colleges across the region to take third place in the junior carpentry category at the regional heat of the competition, which took place at Oxford & Cherwell Valley College on 23rd May. The highest scoring competitors from the heats will be given the opportunity to compete at the three day SkillBuild UK final, which will take place later this year.

Christopher, who is studying a carpentry level one course at Langley College, was overwhelmed to achieve third place in his very first competition.

“It is an honour just to be nominated to compete at SkillBuild, so to have achieved third place is fantastic – especially against such tough competition. The biggest challenge was to maintain the high standards required in the tight timescale, but it has been great experience. I’d like the chance to go back and do even better next time.”

In the regional heat, students had to build a complex structure from test plans in five hours. The test pieces were designed to challenge the ability of entrants to follow detailed instructions, produce accurate and neat work outputs, to be economical with materials while working to strict timescales.

Other candidates from the College also competed in the regional heats. Tyrone Dunne (24, from Langley) showcased his exceptional trowel skills in the senior bricklaying category, while Caleb Beldom (16, from Datchet) narrowly missed out on one of the top spots in the junior bricklaying competition. Meanwhile, Billy Long also competed in the senior carpentry section.

Bricklaying student Tyrone Dunne, who had to produce a complicated piece of brickwork using a variety of different decorative techniques as part of the competition, said: “Taking part in SkillBuild has been a really good experience. It has given me a lot more confidence in my skills and a better understanding of the industry. I really enjoy the complicated decorative side of brickwork and would like to work as an improver on site after I finish college. Eventually, I hope to start my own business.”

The SkillBuild event is the largest multi-trade competition in the country for construction trainees and apprentices. It recognises the skills of young tradesmen and women in various crafts including carpentry, bricklaying, plastering, painting and decorating, and cabinet making.

SkillBuild is an annual event which is managed by CITB, the Sector Skills Council and Industry Training Board for the construction industry, and supported by local employers as well as national sponsors.

Sales managers from the UK’s leading paint brand Dulux, which is part of AkzoNobel, have been developing their painting and decorating skills through a tailored training course at East Berkshire College.


The College was able to put together an intensive five-day training programme for the Dulux employees to provide them with the practical skills and knowledge they need to deliver an enhanced level of advice to retail customers and consumers.

Delivered at Langley College, the short course saw 14 retail sales territory managers and regional development managers learn about wall preparation, painting techniques, wallpapering, tools and materials. As well as developing their practical skills, the course also enabled the employees to gain a City and Guilds Level 1 qualification in painting and decorating.

AkzoNobel’s Dulux brand has over 1,200 colours and products stocked in all major DIY retailers across the UK. This latest training initiative helps the company raise its service and product promotion to another level.

Tim Doherty, Regional Development Manager at AkzoNobel, explains: “As a company, we have extensive internal training on our products, but not the overall decorating job. We were impressed with the training the College arranged for our retail customer Homebase. We therefore decided to enrol our sales team on the course to enable them to extend their skills, speak with confidence on how our products fit into the decorating process and gain a recognised qualification. In fact, we will be including the City and Guilds logo on staff uniforms to assure customers of the quality of our service.”

“East Berkshire College’s flexible approach has made the process of setting up the programme very easy for us. They were able to tailor training to meet our specific requirements, timescales and products. I have received excellent feedback on both the quality of the course and the trainers. As well as enhancing the knowledge of our staff, the training was also a good team building exercise – a benefit that shouldn’t be underestimated.”  

Business Development Manager, Gary Cooper, was one of the individuals who welcomed the chance to go back to College and gain an accredited qualification.

“I really enjoyed the course,” said Gary. “It was really well structured with demonstrations, practical tasks and a useful recap at the end of each day. We know our products, but it is great to know first-hand how to apply them in real situations, like what to use when and in what order. I can now pass this knowledge onto store staff and customers to help further promote our products.”

Steve Ashfield, Sales Development Manager at Dulux said: “We have a very robust internal training programme at Dulux, but are committed to cementing our position as the leading paint brand. We therefore took the decision to enrol our sales teams on the City and Guilds course so they could gain a nationally recognised and credible endorsement for their expertise.

“Doing the course has enabled our staff to develop a standardised set of skills to a professional level, and ensure they are equipped with the right knowledge to advise our stockists of the key benefits our products will provide the end customers.”

East Berkshire College provides tailor-made training solutions to help businesses remain competitive, profitable and productive. With years of experience working with SMEs and multi-nationals, the College can deliver cost-effective training programmes at a time and place to suit any organisation.

New look Langley College takes shape

Langley Campus_progress_web

Work is now well underway on the £16 million improvements to East Berkshire College's Langley Campus in Station Road, which will provide state-of-the-art facilities to meet the community's current and future learning needs. And last week, bricklaying students were given a unique opportunity to see the progress of the building work first-hand.

The twelve students, who are all studying a bricklaying level two or three course at the College, were given a tour of the construction site by Principal Contractor, Kier Construction. Kitted out in protective clothing, the students were able see the building techniques being employed and learn about Health & Safety procedures on site.

Third year student Harry Bolton (22, from Iver), who is a bricklaying apprentice looking to advance on to a Construction Foundation Degree, was keen to see the progress of the works:

"It was great to see the work for ourselves as we have been following the plans week by week from the window. The site is a lot bigger than others I've been on and there's lots of different work going on at once. Kier took us through an induction and talked us through the drainage and block work their bricklayers are doing. I'm looking forward to seeing how much the site has changed on our next visit." Keir tour_0522_web_710px

The improvements at the Langley Campus are providing a valuable learning opportunity for construction students. As part of the project, Kier is committed to arranging regular student tours to give them an insight into a real working site.

The steel frameworks for the new multi-purpose Sports Centre have now been erected and the centre is on schedule to open in May 2013. The facility will not only meet the needs of the College's successful Sports Academy, but also provide the local community with public use of new sports amenities.

Once the Sports Centre is completed, work will begin on transforming the former sports hall into an exciting new Hospitality & Catering Academy. Due for completion in August 2013, this will feature professional training kitchens, a working restaurant and simulated hotel environment.

The Langley Campus building has been at the heart of the community since 1976 and currently serves over 2,400 students from the Langley and Slough area. After over 35 years, the plan to upgrade the campus has received very positive feedback from students, staff, neighbours and local businesses.

The improvement project for the Langley Campus will cost approximately £16m and is being funded mainly by the College, and part funded by a Government grant.

Over the years, the College has continued to go from strength to strength in terms of raising standards and enhancing its range of courses. Today, the Langley Campus is the centre for most of the College's main vocational courses, which all have specialist facilities. These include Motor Vehicle & Engineering, Construction, Hairdressing & Beauty Therapy and Health Care & Education Pathways along with Creative Studies and ESOL & Languages.

The refurbishment of the Langley Campus follows the recent expansion of the College's Windsor Campus, which saw the addition of new science laboratories and improved student social facilities.
