News: College builds partnership with Keepmoat


Dearne Valley College (DVC) in Rotherham has recently partnered up with Keepmoat to support their recruitment by delivering a number of Apprenticeships, allowing young people in the region to gain a foot in the door with a national construction company.

Established in 1976, DVC has its main campus in Manvers and specialises in vocational training and apprenticeships.

Keepmoat, the Doncaster-based affordable housing and community regeneration specialist, was acquired at the end of 2014 by private equity firm Sun Capital and investment funds managed by TDR Capital LLP. The group operates a regeneration team at offices in Manvers, Rotherham that was previously known as Bramall Construction.

Apprentices, Charlotte Scattergood, Savina Lubiki and Bryony Mannion have completed their training and gained industry-specific qualifications through their Level 2 and Level 3 Business Administration Apprenticeships at Keepmoat, with the support of DVC.

Mark Knight, regional managing director of Keepmoat Homes Yorkshire said: "For young people just starting out in the world of work, apprenticeships have many important advantages for them and the businesses they work within, such as offering efficient ways to learn skills, and to undertake training that is planned in advanced, organised and relevant to the business and the individual's learning needs.

"Keepmoat know that the apprentices of today are the workforce and Managers of tomorrow, and we attach a great importance and value to the role they play within our organisation. We cannot ignore the need to grow our skills and talent of the future and our Apprentices are the key to ensuring this happens."

Paul Edwards, business development officer at Dearne Valley College, added: "Dearne Valley College recognises that Keepmoat plays an integral role within the local community and is delighted to work in partnership with them to recruit and train their Apprentices.

"The apprentices have progressed well throughout the training and each have their own success story. We hope that their Apprenticeship will be the catalyst for further success for all. It is only with the help of local businesses that we can grow and shape the future of the local economy and Apprenticeships will continue to play a pivotal role in this success."

Keepmoat is pledging to support over 400 apprentices across the UK over the next 12 months building on last year when it helped more than 300 people to gain experience and skills through its apprenticeships.
