Dozens of construction industry apprenticeships available

A construction industry training company which has helped over 100 young people into employment has announced plans to create a further 65 apprenticeships.

Pro-active Training in Hartlepool is looking for enthusiastic candidates to join them the end of August to work towards moving into apprenticeship roles across the construction industry.

The company has already helped 140 young people into employment with businesses across the Tees Valley and County Durham, who are now working towards NVQ level 2 across joinery, brickwork and groundwork.

Pro-active Training was launched in 2014 as an organisation offering apprenticeships across the construction sector with the aim of becoming one of the leaders in the delivery of vocational construction training in the North East.

In 2016 the company was awarded ‘Most Promising New Business’ at the Hartlepool Business Awards.

The company delivers quality traineeships alongside both Level 2 and 3 apprenticeships in bricklaying, joinery and general construction to either prepare a young person for, or to complement, their experience in the workplace.

Over the first three years of trading Pro-active has worked with over 200 young people.

The training centre based in Hartlepool is particularly aimed at those looking to learn a construction trade and provides a 16,000 square foot training area to allow for practical activity and several classrooms for theory-based learning.

Pro-active Training is accredited by CITB Construction Skills and Highfield awarding body.


The company currently has 140 students on apprenticeship programmes working towards Level 2’s in Brickwork, Groundwork and Joinery.


The 65 16-18 year-olds Pro-active wants to recruit will be given the opportunity to train from August for 12 weeks on a traineeship programme to prepare them to move into apprenticeships across the construction sector.


During the 12 weeks the young people will be taught the basic skills required to work in construction along with health and safety training and undertake CSCS tests.
