Part of Salford City College Group

The Build Salford traineeship is a unique programme for 16-24 year olds seeking a pathway to an apprenticeship with some of the best local construction companies.

The programme has over 20 dedicated industry partners, who all have one thing in mind: to create as many opportunities as possible for young people looking to kick start their career in the construction sector. The programme has had fantastic success since it began, with trainees now undertaking apprenticeships and employment with construction firms across the North West.

The preparation begins with the chance to gain a CSCS certificate and culminates with a seven week work placement. The traineeship has a high success rate, with many students progressing onto an apprenticeship or employment after completion.

You will benefit from:

  • Fantastic work placement opportunities
  • Free personal protection equipment
  • Free health and safety programme
  • Free travel and weekly allowance*
  • The opportunity to progress to an apprenticeship

Applications for Build Salford 2023 will open in Spring 2023. To find out more information email.
