Construction Industry Apprenticeships


Kevin O’Connor – Head of Social Responsibility and Inclusion


“JBT are our key training partner – a relationship built on many years successful working with Joe Brennan. JBT stands out for us as an organisation that really understands our social value.

Not only do they provide a consistently professional and effective apprentice management service, but they work closely with us to develop innovative ‘joined up’ training pathways that ensure
all learners progress towards their career goals.

What really stands out for us though is JBT’s uncompromising ethos – the best interests and welfare of the learners
always comes first. We look forward to many more years working with JBT to give learners the opportunity to transform their lives through training for construction careers.”


Jeffrey Joseph – Community Investment Manager

Higgins Construction PLC

Higgins Construction rarely work with external sources, with regard to its apprenticeship programmes. However, on the occasions where we have, JBT are our only external partner of choice; we have consistently found them to be:

  • honest
  • ethical
  • fair

and always deliver exactly what they say they are going to deliver. JBT have a genuine passion for placing trainees who are hungry and fit for work into the right positions and they successfully execute the Placement and provide excellent pastoral care in a professional manner whilst understanding the trainee’s needs.

What makes JBT different from other Providers is that they understand the industry and the trainee and most importantly the role of all the parties who contribute to a positive outcome; the Subcontractor, the Contractor, the Trainee and all the associated administration. It may be an overused cliché but JBT are a ‘one stop shop’ in the discipline of apprenticeship training programmes.”
