Colas - we go further

We recruit school and college leavers as apprentices for a range of specialist programmes. Our apprentices receive on-going training and development from the start and receive nationally recognised qualifications.


At Colas we have been training apprentices for over 20 years. Our industry relies on skilled and experienced people, and as an Investors in People we are committed to providing our people with the right training and support they need to help them build a portfolio of their experiences and work.

Our apprenticeship opportunities provide real prospects for civil engineering, electrical engineering, mechanical services and construction projects. As a Colas apprentice you will be trained by industry experts and work towards a widely recognised National Vocational Qualification (NVQ).

Depending on the apprenticeship chosen, the on going training and qualification may take two -four years to complete.

Apprenticeships are an excellent way of gaining hands on experience and practical skills. Working with us, you will learn and gain job specific skills and knowledge through your own personal mentor and working alongside our industry experts.
