Have you heard about our new Installer Training Academy?
7th October 2021
That's right, with the month of October comes a wealth of new opportunities as Safestyle’s Installer Training Academy gets formally launched.
This recently-developed scheme is targeted at adult trainees (those 21 and above) who may be new to the industry, providing them with a year long contract where upon completion, trainees can opt to become a contractor, working independently on basic level jobs, or apply to extend their training journey to become a fully qualified installer.
Currently, our new in-house training academy is set to run on a paid 12 month contract, however, those candidates who are particularly skilled may be able to finish earlier.
Candidates will spend 90 percent of their time in training on the job, with a particular focus on a hands-on approach; the remaining ten percent will be utilised to learn in a classroom environment.
To assess progress, candidates will undertake a short assessment every 3 months, with the eventual promise of guaranteed work with Safestyle if successful. This work will be offered through the form of working independently on basic level jobs, or applying to extend your training journey to become a fully qualified installer.
This scheme has been developed as a way to create life-changing opportunities for young people actively seeking to generate and utilise new working skills. As the UKs number one provider for windows and doors, here at Safestyle we understand the industry is ever changing and growing in its demand for new work and skilled candidates. Thus, our training programme is an opportunity to build our own talent whilst also providing a space for people interested in entering the industry.
Furthermore, acting as an extension of the programme, Safestyle has opportunities for new lead installers who are interested in making a difference and training the next generation of their trade. As well as this, a limited number of trainee places within a second Academy programme specifically designed for younger trainees will be put up for grabs.
