Keyfix presents interview with apprenticeships partner Lee Marley Brickwork

  • 16 Aug 2022

Keyfix is launching its video interview with brand ambassador Lee Marley Brickwork in demonstration of its commitment to Training and Development for future generations of construction employees.

Keyfix’s video features an interview with Keyfix brand ambassador, Christian Hatherall-Good, Training Manager at Lee Marley Brickwork, to highlight how Keyfix is supporting the next generation of bricklayers. 

Keyfix acknowledges the importance of investing in the construction industry and is passionate about supporting the next generation of engineers, construction workers and bricklayers.

After discovering that there is approximately a 70% dropout rate between Level 1 and Level 2 Bricklayers, Keyfix decided to extend its support by sponsoring relevant industry bodies with apprenticeships.

The company’s intention is to support the progress of novice bricklayers, with the aim of encouraging them to progress in their careers. The masonry accessory manufacturer and supplier collaborates closely with its apprenticeship partners to identify where it can offer its industry expertise and support.

Lee Marley Brickwork has been collaborating with Keyfix for 18 months to deliver Continuing Professional Development (CPD) resources for on-site staff and apprentices to help enhance their skills and knowledge of their Non-Combustible Cavity Trays (NCCTs). 

Fire safety

In light of the Grenfell Tower fire tragedy, fire safety is a heightened concern for the construction industry, with the increased use of non-combustible products as part of building design. 

Therefore, education on non-combustible cavity products will be crucial to bricklayers newly entering the profession. Keyfix has provided CPD at the colleges attended by Lee Marley brickwork apprentices to ensure the attainment of essential industry knowledge for apprentices.

Christian comments: “Lee Marley appreciates all of Keyfix’s support and the work that they do with us. Their CPD work really enhances apprentices’ understanding and helps them in their careers going forward.”

Keyfix continues to work in conjunction with colleges and universities to offer construction career pathways for students.

Keyfix’s sponsorship can take many forms; the company provides funding, merchandise, product samples for product training, product training, tool box talks, as well as online CPD webinars aimed at informing and educating bricklayers about the latest regulations regarding non-combustibility following the Grenfell tragedy.
