Buckingham Group Contracting (currently building York Stadium Leisure Complex at Monks Cross) is offering a second Apprenticeship Taster Day on Tuesday 28 May.

The Taster Day is a perfect opportunity for any Year 11 interested in a career in both technical and trade construction occupations. The young people who get to attend will find out what it’s like in a real construction environment around employees and apprentices working on the Community Stadium.

Places are limited and students will be given places on a first come, first serve basis. If you would like to apply for this taster, please visit

Tristan Tregartha, Future Skills Manager, Buckingham Group Contracting Ltd, said: “Following the success of last year’s event we are delighted to be supporting another Apprenticeship Taster Day. We have a number of displays, activities and presentations that we are sure will be informative and enjoyable for those who are able to attend.”
