Novus continues to have positive impact

Our past and current training schemes continue to boost the prospects of many and have a positive impact on people’s lives.

Our ongoing apprentice programme gives young people an early advantage in their construction careers, while schemes such as Stars of the Future and our Scholarship Programme give people a further step up the ladder.

In the past, we have sponsored several initiatives, including a regeneration scheme which helped ex-offenders to find a new, positive way forward in life.

Eight years ago, David Hardy took part in this scheme following a spell in prison during which he learned the basics of painting and decorating.

David has continued to develop his skills and experience in the construction sector, having studied plastering at college and taken part in several placements, including with Saltbox Christian Centre.

We are delighted that David now regularly works as a sub-contractor for Novus, through his employer Taylor Made Joinery, and he has got to where he is today partly due to the scheme we sponsored.

Recently, David has worked on our Steelite International contract, Aspire Housing contract, and is currently working in Stafford to build a house under Passivhaus guidelines.

David said: “I’m thankful to those who gave up their time and offered financial support so that I could take part in training and give my life more focus.

“Training schemes such as the one I took part in bring positivity to people’s lives and help to lift them out of a rut. I’m proud of the work I’ve completed with Novus and aim to continue working with the company.”
