Join us at our Trade Skills Day

Everything you need to get moving with a new trades career

At the Apprenticeship Academy, we’re keen to help the UK-wide shortage of trade skills through our industry-leading apprenticeship training academy.

We know choosing to take the apprenticeship route can be a difficult decision – much like buying a new car, you need the option to ‘try before you buy’ so to speak. This is where our Trade Skills Day comes into play, helping you to decide on your next steps.

At our state-of-the-art training facility, we’re here for you every step of the way. Guiding you on the steps you might want to take, from contacting a prospective employer, to training and timescales, and straight through to certification.

What to expect during our Trade Skills Day

Our Trade Skills Days run every 4-6 weeks, giving you the chance to get involved and step into the shoes of an apprenticeship tradie – seeing what an average day in our academy would be like.

Our next Trade Skills Day will take place on Thursday 14th of July 2022.

You can expect the following from the event:

  • The session will run from 10am to 2pm
  • You will be taken on a tour of the academy and have the chance to meet the tutors
  • We will provide tips on CV and cover letter writing
  • You can expect to receive interview prep
  • We will give you the lowdown of tips for contacting an employer
  • A practical session will be administered by the tutors, giving you the chance to really get stuck into the hands-on experience
  • You will have a quick debrief with other apprentices at the academy so you can ask any questions about the course

Feedback Quotes

Don’t just take it from us – hear from our previous attendees about their experience!

“The Trade Skills Day was brilliant, it gave me an insight into the actual learning side of things within the centre, meeting the tutors was great and they are all very knowledgeable about the trade, walking around the facilities I was shocked to see how good and clean they are, and it just shows that HomeServe offers brilliant learning facilities. All in all, it was an amazing experience and if all goes well, I'm looking forward to starting a gas apprenticeship with HomeServe.”
“The Trade Skills Day was very informative and added a lot of substance to my knowledge of the course and what it entails.”
