BUDGET 2011: Kier to take advantage of training investment

Bosses at Kier Building Maintenance have pledged to take advantage of new apprenticeships and work experience measures announced in today’s Budget.

Dan Maher, the partnership and business development director said the Government announcement of 40,000 additional apprentices, as well as six extra technical colleges and another 100,000 work experience placements, was an important intervention.

He said: “Kier welcomes the budget announcements on technical colleges, apprenticeships and work experience. We believe that this will build on our existing education, training and employment programmes across all our partnerships.

“More importantly this is a welcome intervention particularly for those young people not in education, training or employment, and it’s up to us within the construction industry to link into these initiatives in order to ensure that we can create the opportunities to link vocational training and work experience into work placements and jobs on the ground.”
