As a long term model for building conservation contracting, Ward & Co places great store on training and has a rolling programme of apprenticeships in lime plastering, carpentry, stone-masonry and brick-masonry to ensure that both modern and traditional skills are carried into the future.
I did not realise quite the impact taking a bricklaying course would have on my future.
Bricklayer, Assistant Surveyor
After three years, two of which were spent on block-release at Stroud College, I now feel competent in all aspects of site and bench carpentry.
I wish to take the opportunity to say thank you for allowing me to carry out my apprenticeship at Ward & Co.
