EN:Able Futures Academy now open!


EN:Able Futures' innovative Housing & Infrastructure Academy welcomes first students

EN:Able Futures are pleased to announce the launch of our first specialised Housing and Infrastructure Academy for Yorkshire and the Humber on Monday 10th September.

The  Academy has been designed to address the major skills shortages in the industry particularly affecting the professional/technical areas, Efficiency North (a member of the NFB) has established this Apprenticeship Academy run from our offices at Sovereign Court, Sheffield to deliver an innovative apprenticeship programme with Leeds College of Building as training provider.

A cohort of apprentices will participate in a two year programme where they study on a block release basis for a Level 3 qualification in Construction and the Built Environment whilst working on hosted assignments with contractors / consultants in order to enrich the apprenticeship journey. As an industry-led academy programme, we are including contractor-led targeted CPD sessions alongside professional mentoring to ensure that the apprentices get a fully-rounded training and development package.

The academy will take on 12 young people for the cohort who will be studying Built Environment & Engineering Services Faculty - (HE, Construction Design & Management) under the curriculum taught by Leeds College of Building for an initial 2 weeks followed by 1 week a month for the academic year.

Catherine Bishop, EN:Able Futures’ Employment and Skills Executive commented, “We are delighted to welcome the apprentices to our organisation and are sure that this will be the beginning of a positive journey for them all.”
