Scottish contractor endorses BCSA CRAFT apprenticeships

Posted on by in News

Four BHC apprentices have recently been awarded the British Constructional Steelwork Association (BCSA) CRAFT certificate.

Over the past four years, the apprentices – Steven Barclay, Sam Baverstock, Mark Ewart and Connor Morrison (all pictured) undertook a variety of training modules with the assistance of their coaches.

The monitoring of the training and final confirmation of the module tests were validated by BHC’s in-house BCSA Registered Validators, Jimmy Cowan (Registered Welding Coordinator), Brian Edwards (Production Process Engineer) and Richie Struthers (HSQE Manager).

BHC said it continues to invest heavily in the apprentices it employs and recently welcomed 20 new first-year apprentices into the company.

The BCSA CRAFT apprenticeship is a key element to the company’s ongoing success and BHC said it is proud to recognise the importance of apprenticeships within the steel construction industry.

BCSA’s CRAFT Scheme is an industry approved alternative apprenticeship training scheme developed by the Association.

The BCSA is also a Lantra approved corporate training provider with the intention to help member companies that wish to bring new people into the industry. The CRAFT Certificate delivers a training package that is relevant to the steelwork fabrication processes used in the industry.

For details about CRAFT please contact Pete Walker, BCSA’s Director of Health, Safety & Training.
