McGinley offers standard apprenticeships starting from a 13-month period and tailored to infrastructure competencies. We can now also offer the new Flexi-job apprenticeship which offers more flexibility, ideal for contractors with shorter-duration projects.

What is a Flexi-job apprenticeship?

All apprenticeships have a minimum 12-month duration. That is a long time considering many projects in the infrastructure sector can last only a few months.

The Flexi-job apprenticeship has a minimum 3-month commitment, making it ideal for infrastructure projects across highways, construction, civils, rail, utilities etc.

The apprentice completes the training minimum 12-month duration, but moves around with several different host employers during the programme. 

We are looking for host employers to take apprentices - contact Lisa Cunningham via lisa.cunningham@mcginley.co.uk or call 07799 385 797 for more information. 

McGinley is an accredited Flexi-job Apprenticeship Agency

The Department for Education has approved just 15 organisations as a Flexi-job Apprenticeship Agency. McGinley is proud to have been chosen to offer this service to the Infrastructure sector.

Share the requirement with your supply chain

- You can invite McGinley to join your MSP listing as a provider of apprentices.

- You can ask your supply chain to contact McGinley so your suppliers can also bring in apprentices.

 

Share your levy funding

The Department for Education rules allows companies to share up to 25% of their total levy if they cannot use it up. Companies can share funding even if they do not take apprentices. This funding is crucial to pay for the training costs.
