The Ailsa Youth Training Programme

The Ailsa Youth Training Programme is an initiative designed to supply a route to a career in the construction industry.

It is open to candidates via a number of routes:

  • By direct approach to Ailsa – download application form
  • By referral from a training college
  • Via various “back to work” schemes
  • By referral from Council led employment schemes


The scheme is open to anybody who is entering the employment market for the first time or for anybody wishing to re-train,switch careers etc. All successful applicants are given 12 weeks guaranteed employment coupled with training in the core elements of working on construction sites. On completion of the 12 weeks candidates receive a Certificate of Employment by Ailsa detailing the training successfully completed. Suitable candidates may progress to an apprenticeship in Roof Tiling and Slating, Plastering (Trowel Trades), or an SVQ. There may also be an opportunity to enter our graduate scheme.

Ailsa are working in conjunction with local colleges and local authorities to deliver modern training within an apprenticeship framework.
