The Company encourages good industrial training practices and operates a formal apprenticeship scheme. The business also has established procedures for identifying and providing the training needs of employees who may receive further education and training when new developments, skills or techniques are introduced. 

Houlton is proud of its long term commitment to training its workforce and encouraging training with its sub-contractors and recent achievements include:

CITB Platinum Standard Certificate achieved for minimum 90% employees accredited with Construction Skills Certificate Scheme.

Apprentices – 2 new apprentices started (2015); 8 apprentices now employed plus 3 apprentices successfully completed their apprenticeship during the year.

Engaged with local students from Winifred Holtby School, The Goodwin Trust and Construction Skills College to promote A Good Day to Learn. Young people were offered the opportunity to try brickwork and joinery tasks with the help of Hull College and Houlton apprentices with prizes offered for the best attempts on the day (June 2011). It was so successful that the event was repeated with pupils from Sirrius Academy enjoying their day out of the classroom (June 2012).

We have been delighted to further enhance the Houlton family throughout recent months to help ensure we maintain our exceptionally high standards as we continue to grow as a business. Graduates, trainees and apprentices have been welcomed to the business, with one apprentice in particular making a glittering start to his Houlton career when recognised at Hull College School of Construction and Built Environment annual awards. Mathew Myers, Apprentice Bricklayer, age 21 of Hull, received the special attainment award from Lord Mayor of Hull Cllr Colin Inglis. “ Ensuring we have the very best candidates joining Houlton is of paramount importance to maintain the standards we have set over the previous 130 years. I am delighted with the calibre of colleagues that we have welcomed to the team and all of them can be exceptionally proud of their achievements thus far.” Richard Houlton, Houlton Chairman
