The start of August saw six fresh faces arriving at St Austell-based Ocean Housing Group Ltd to take up their apprenticeships.
Skills and Employment
Ocean has now supported over 100 local people to complete apprenticeships and gain skills and employment in Cornwall and is looking forward to working in partnership with Cornwall College to train these latest recruits.

“Carpentry was a trade I had been dreaming about, so it’s a great opportunity and a dream come true!”
All the apprentices will now benefit from an intensive period of induction to help them settle into their new roles.
