Training and Apprenticeships

AD has operated an award winning apprenticeship and entry level traineeship scheme since the 1980’s in order to secure new talent to meet the future needs of our business and to invest in a workforce where there is a well reported industry shortage of skills.

AD offers nationally recognised apprenticeships in both trades and business related roles and supports entry level quantity surveying staff with fully funded HNC degrees and fully supported day release schemes with local educational providers.

AD offer fully supported training and UK recognised qualifications. Our staff benefit from a range of available options such as AAT, CIPD, HNC, and NVQ attainment (Levels 1 – 6) in numerous role specific disciplines.

All AD site staff are required to achieve the correct level of Construction Skills Certification Scheme - CSCS card for the role they undertake and AD support our staff in achieving the relevant level of NVQ in order to attain this important industry certification.  

Learning and Development is key focus and contributor to our continued growth strategy, ensuring we have qualified staff who are committed to our values and ways of working. AD invest in our staff and ensure they enjoy fulfilling careers and meet their full potential.

All staff have access to training and can request additional training via their appraisals in order to progress their careers within AD to their aspirations.

Our considerable experience has enabled us to assemble skilled and accomplished teams that are capable of fulfilling all of our clients’ needs in a time and cost efficient manner. With nearly three quarters of a century of skills, training and experience at our disposal, our team can manage every job from the simple redecoration of a single room, through to more demanding projects, such as the refurbishment of the entire housing stocks spread over wide geographical areas.
