Supporting construction apprenticeships

12th November 2013


Ayrshire Housing is pleased that its longstanding relationship with Prestwick based builder Ashleigh (Scotland) Ltd continues to create new training opportunities.

In part due to its current housing contract for the association, three apprentices have been recruited. This builds on Ashleigh’s longstanding support for the Access Construction Ayrshire training project. This  Ayrshire Housing promoted scheme supported over 30 young people into apprenticeships.

The new apprentices are Drew Barron, a joiner, Martin Lochlon a bricklayer and Scott Fleming a trainee quantity surveyor.

David Smith, Ashleigh’s Joint Managing Director said “I’m really pleased that our current job at Maybole for Ayrshire Housing has helped us continue our support for construction apprenticeships. Investing in training is critical to the future success of our industry”.
