Councillor Bassam Mahfouz, Ealing Council’s cabinet member for decent living incomes said: “With the pandemic’s long-term impact on Ealing residents and businesses, creating good jobs is one of the council’s three top priorities, as set out in our Plan for Good Jobs. In fact, we have committed to securing 10,000 new jobs in Ealing over the next four years.

“That’s why we are thrilled to bring you this traineeship, together with our partners at the college. Work experience is a fantastic first step to a career in construction – a growth sector, more resilient to future economic shocks such as COVID-19.”

Daljit Bains, Director of Business Development & Partnership at West London College, added: “We are delighted to be able to offer this new occupational traineeship in carpentry and joinery in partnership with Ealing Council, NOCN and CITB. As one of the largest apprenticeship providers in the West London area, we have developed this traineeship to give young people the opportunity to explore something new and prepare them for an apprenticeship or other employment.”
