Apprenticeships & Trainee Opportunities

Learn a trade and earn at the same time with our Apprenticeships and Trainee programmes at Barratt.

Within our award winning Barratt Academy we run a number of programmes for Apprentices and Trainees to create the very best skills learning environment for you.  

By combining professional training both on-site and in the classroom, our programmes allow you to gain industry recognised qualifications whilst at the same time building connections with experienced professionals and people with specialist technical knowledge. Furthermore, your development will be overseen individually by one of our own Directors, showing you just how seriously we take supporting your training.

Why choose between a university/college education, or paid employment – when you can have the best of both worlds, and a little bit more besides?

There are so many essential elements to the construction of a development. And each element requires specialist people to ensure it's carried out successfully. Visit our main careers website to learn more about the construction lifecycle.  

We know our approach works because so many of our Managers and Directors started their careers as an Apprentice or Trainee and are still with us today; including our Deputy CEO. It’s not just us who thinks this. We’ve been named in the Top 100 Apprentice Employers list for 3 years, and in 2014 were named the National Apprenticeship Service BT Macro Employer of the Year.
