Combining a five-year degree with on-the-job training across different departments on live construction sites, the programme is a comprehensive introduction to the sector.
John Millward, Russell WBHO director in charge of the Building Student programme, said the partnership with the University was providing young people with an enviable opportunity.
He said: “Combining theory with practice in this way gives our young people an incredibly valuable start to their careers.
“We have developed an excellent in-house training programme with opportunities for trainees to experience different departments and a variety of project types, and undertake necessary roles as part of a project team on a live building site.
“Together with what they learn at University, our students graduate well ahead of the game to become valued members of the Russells team and contribute to the continued success of our business.”
