Tackling the skills shortages: how Premier Guarantee is training the next generation

This week is National Apprenticeship Week and its theme is “Build the Future”. Premier Guarantee is proud to be building that future by training the next generation of surveyors and support staff, roles vital to the future success of the housebuilding industry.


But what does an apprenticeship or training programme with Premier Guarantee entail? And how do the programmes work?


First, we asked Freya Ferguson, apprentice Learning and Development Assistant, to tell us in her own words what the apprentice programme opportunity meant for her and how it helped her transition from her Covid-affected education to the world of work.

Switching careers


What about switching your career? People do it all the time. Grace Bradshaw, an Account Manager at Premier Guarantee, was inspired to take on a new challenge and train to become a risk management surveyor. You can read her story here.


The next generation of Premier Guarantee surveyors


Another route to working with us via our graduate training programme. In this article we caught up with four trainees as they embarked on their journey with Premier Guarantee, to find out why they had taken this career path. This blog describes the graduate training scheme in more detail.


They will be following in the footsteps of Luke Roberts, a graduate trainee alumni now working as a Senior Risk Management Surveyor. His story is told here.
