Cumbrian based training provider, Gen2, and Project Control specialists, Prima Uno, are delighted to announce the launch of a new apprenticeship programme in Project Controls. The first apprentices are set to begin their programme later this year, where they will cover topics such as planning, cost and commercial management- just some of the critical skills needed to deliver projects.
Delivered in partnership by industry professionals from Prima Uno and Gen2, apprentices will complete their training over 42 months as part of the nationally-recognised ECITB Advanced Apprenticeship framework. The Project Controls Apprenticeship will also contain specialised modules built in conjunction with Prima Uno’s specialist training material.
In addition to these apprenticeships, bespoke short courses will be available to upskill existing staff of local employers who work in Project Controls & Project Planning. This will help enhance the skills of local Cumbrian practitioners ahead of the Nuclear New Build which is set to bring a huge boost to the local economy. Non-nuclear companies can also take advantage of these apprenticeships and the commercial training workshops.
Sarah Purdham, Managing Director of Prima Uno added: “We are delighted to be working in collaboration with Gen 2 in bringing an excellent new training package and qualification to Cumbria. Our expert consultants will be delivering the training and ensuring the students competency over the duration of the course. This is an excellent opportunity for young Cumbrians to gain specialist skills and provide them with excellent career opportunities “.
The Project Controls apprentices are also joined by a record number of apprentices across all Gen2 centres in Carlisle, Workington and Lillyhall with a total of 350 apprentices starting their full-time apprenticeships during September and an anticipated 500 apprentices by August 2016.
