We are proud holders of the Investors in Young People SILVER award, demonstrating our commitment to invest in and nurture our younger members of our staff – from developing their skillsets to helping them build the career they want as well as caring about their work-life balance.
The CMS Apprentice Academy was established in 2018 as part of our ongoing commitment to providing young people with training, experience and opportunities for personal growth and development.
The CMS Apprentice Academy offers young people the opportunity to join and complete a 60-week training programme, covering every aspect of manufacturing and installing windows to industry-leading standards.
Personal development and technical training across a range of different areas within CMS is also part of the curriculum, with the aim of placing successful graduates in permanent roles within the company upon completion.
Working within our factory, apprentices are assigned a mentor to guide them through all aspects of manufacturing and glazing a window, to be reviewed by external assessors throughout.
On-site, on-the-job training within CMS’s PVCu contract delivery department. Apprentices work with qualified window fitters, alongside external assessment and review.
