The INS-Pire Academy is designed to help train young people into skilled trades, including building, restoration and renovation, engineering, decorating and loss adjusting.
The first virtual discussion on its 2021 events calendar, online training on Wednesday 17th February, provided apprentices with an introduction to the problems and causes of tree root subsidence to commercial and residential properties.
Featuring The Subsidence Forum and Sarah Dodd from DAC Beachcroft, the virtual discussion included how trees can cause properties to crack, how to solve the problem, and the legal claims that can follow, to help the property owner with their insurance.
As the regional contact across Merseyside and the surrounding areas for the INS-pire Academy, managing director for The Forshaw Group, Liam Hanlon, explained the importance of this training:
“The recent National Apprenticeship Week, (8 – 14 February), highlighted the importance of ‘building for the future’. This is especially important as the world continues to struggle through the impact of Covid-19. With many schools and colleges forced to close intermittently over the past year, The INS-Pire Academy’s online training will be essential in delivering the knowledge and skills to develop their careers and address the skills gap across the trades industry.”
The INS-Pire Academy Apprentice Enhancement Day took place at 3pm on Wednesday 17 February 2021. Apprentices can view a recording of the virtual training here:
