We have the privilege to announce that Barnwood has become the latest employer partner of AccXel!

Barnwood, a well-known Gloucestershire-based construction company, has joined AccXel as one of our Employer Partners for our Apprenticeship Programmes. This is another promising development for our apprenticeships, as we have also signed Industry Partnership deals with notable companies such as JCB and Leica Geosystems.

Whilst JCB and Leica Geosystems will be providing machinery and digital equipment to assist in the practical education of our apprentices, Barnwood will be guaranteeing employment for our learners throughout the programme. The team at Barnwood will also ensure that our apprentices receive an incredible best first experience on-site and help pave the way for them to have a bright future in the construction industry.

Speaking on the new partnership Ben Ramsay, Managing Director of Barnwood, stated that “We at Barnwood wanted to team up with AccXel as one of its Employer Partners because we have an aligned ethos to improve sustainability within the industry and want to help open up more opportunities for men and women alike.”

We too believe that Barnwood are the perfect fit for AccXel, as they have a long history of helping their employees reach their personal goals, and build long, rewarding careers in construction. They pride themselves on being a people-centred business, valuing equality, creativity, and diversity above all else. Barnwood are dedicated to having a diverse and inclusive workforce and work alongside organisations such as Women in Construction to help bridge the diversity gaps within the industry. Not only are they tackling diversity issues within the industry, but they have also recognised sustainability issues within construction and actively address these issues. Barnwood have sought out the advice of EcoVadis, and continuously work with them to improve their carbon reduction, sustainability, and CSR performance. We wholeheartedly believe that our apprentices will have the best experience and will gain excellent insight into the industry through working at Barnwood.

We are thrilled to be working alongside Barnwood on our Apprenticeship Programmes, as we love working alongside construction companies and industry-leaders who help pave career paths into construction for the next generation.
