Apprenticeships are being offered on the building sites in Whitechapel, Canary Wharf and Canning Town for on-the-job training for careers in construction.

Trainees are needed by Berkeley Homes at the massive Goodman’s Field housing scheme off Commercial Road and at Canary Wharf’s South Quay Plaza for business admin, carpentry, cladding, dry lining, painting and tiling.

The Goodman’s Field site also needs landscaping apprentices, while South Quay Plaza wants additional trainees for kitchen fitting, lifts engineering and steel fixing.

One trainee already on the scheme is Rainá Malcolm, a second-year apprentice in kitchen fitting.

“I secured a university place to study architecture, but was worried about the cost of a degree,” she said. “This apprenticeship is a chance to learn and earn at the same time.”
