Learn and earn

An apprenticeship is a great way to learn while you earn and gain recognised qualifications. You’ll spend time studying for a qualification whilst working within one of the companies in the Tara Group.

The learning part

Each apprenticeship is different. Here is a flavour of what’s on offer within the Tara Group.


Site Supervisor

The course work is interesting and accessible with 10 different modules, delivered virtually by a construction focused trainer from the National Home Builders Council (NHBC). No need to travel, you can learn from anywhere. The course content focuses on new build homes and meets the requirements of apprenticeship standard ST0048. At the end of this apprenticeship, you’ll have an industry-recognised Level 4 qualification in Site Supervision with a relevant CSCS card. More information on the course can be found here.

If you are looking for a more skills based apprenticeship, we have partnered with the National Home Builders Council NHBC to offer a bricklaying apprenticeship.  You will be assigned to one of our site based trade teams where you will develop your skills building our beautiful homes.  At the end of this apprenticeship, you’ll have an industry-recognised Level 4 qualification.

You’ll spend time at the NHBC Bricklaying Hub in Tamworth, and time working alongside experienced site teams at our flagship development in Burton on Trent. Your time will be split between on-site work and learning as you become a fully qualified Bricklayer.

After a 5-week continuous block of heavily practical sessions held at the NHBC Training Hub, you will return to site working alongside a qualified and experienced team of bricklayers.

You will then return to the hubs every 8-10 weeks to complete additional intensive two-week blocks of training. Without college term times and our intensive blocks of learning you can complete within 18 months.

More information on the course can be found here.

Want to understand the in’s and outs of construction, then this is the place to start.  You will interpret design specifications to prepare a construction site ready for structural building works to begin. Over an 18-month period, you will gain all the skills required alongside a Level 2 Groundworker apprenticeship qualification. More details on the skills you will gain can be found here.

These are all site-based roles, so you will need to be happy to work outdoors in all weathers. You will need to be good with your hands, good working within a team, and passionate about the industry. You will be based in the East & West Midlands and will require your own transport to travel to the site and occasionally our offices in Chasetown, Staffordshire. GCSE or equivalent Maths and English (Grade 2-3) essential.

Office-based apprenticeships

It's not all about hard hats. Maybe being on site isn’t for you? We have plenty of office-based apprenticeships across the group in Engineering, Plant, Purchasing/Buying, IT, Finance, People and Office Administration. Each will see you learn on the job as well achieve a leading qualification in your chosen area of interest.

Alongside the apprenticeship training, we’ll support you through the Tara Academy, our own unique way to train our people to grow, learn and develop their skills for the future.

To support you developing your career we’ll give you an individual development plan which will help you define a clear purpose and objectives to help you get where you want to go.  

A culture of support

And, you’ll be joining a group that will provide you with all the necessary support within a culture that has strong family values.
