CSCS testing opens new doors

Posted in: Case Study.


Alex popped in to register with us as he was keen to secure an apprenticeship. He was unsure exactly what he wanted to do but he knew that he enjoyed outdoor work.

A short time later Morrison Construction approached CEIS Ayrshire looking for 2 young people for Construction Apprenticeships. Alex seemed extremely keen after explaining that if he was successful he would be expected to do a 3 week work trial. Following an interview with Tigers Training – Alex was offered the work trial; we explained that this was the employer’s opportunity to assess his reliability and enthusiasm. We also put Alex through his CSCS test as he could not get onto a construction site without this and gave him travel expenses to get to the trial.

On the completion of the 3 week trial Alex was taken on – full time – as an Apprentice, he will be trained in all aspects of construction. The feedback from the employer has been fantastic – stating that they will use CEIS in the future when they have vacancies.
