News: Dandara and CoTrain - a shared apprenticeship in action

10 September 2019

Case study with Dandara

Dandara Southern has found success through CoTrain’s shared apprenticeship scheme. Within 14 months of opening their new regional office in Southampton, Construction Management apprentices now make up 15% of their workforce. 

Chris Harrison joined housing developer Dandara as Operations Director in 2018 to work alongside MD Ian Beal in setting up a new regional office in Southampton. In his previous roles as Director for Willmott Dixon and Miller Construction, Chris played an active role in championing entry-level management apprenticeships. Keen to build upon those successes and with the business quickly growing, Chris identified not-for-profit CoTrain as a solution for Dandara. Since then, CoTrain have provided extensive support in recruiting and managing Construction Management trainees in this new office.
