Mulalley and Basildon Council launch training scheme for young people in borough

Mulalley and Basildon Council welcomed 12 new apprentices onto their brand new apprenticeship training scheme which combines practical work experience within a site environment with studies at college.

A celebratory lunch was held at Mulalley’s Basildon site office to welcome the 12 new apprentices and the project staff got to meet the keen new employees.

The two-year multi-trade scheme is bespoke with Prospects College and involves the apprentices learning skills in plumbing, tiling and decorating.

Mulalley Director Bruce Benson said ‘Our scheme has proved to be a huge success in other areas and we are delighted to be working in partnership with Basildon Council and Prospects College.

‘It was a pleasure to meet the new apprentices and we look forward to building on the success of the training scheme and helping them achieve a qualification and forge a career in the industry.’

Councillor Phil Turner, deputy leader and cabinet member for housing, said: ‘It is the council’s vision to create opportunity and by offering these apprenticeships Mulalley are helping to create opportunity for young people in the borough by giving them a firm platform into the world of work.

‘This experience will put them in good stead and enable them to take their first steps on the career ladder in a friendly and supportive environment.’

Mulalley is the sole contractor on Basildon Borough Council’s internal Decent Homes Programme , delivering £28 million improvements works to half the boroughs housing stock.
