Adaptive Construction Solutions (ACS) Legendary 2021 National Apprenticeship Week Video is Finally Here.

Adaptive Construction Solutions are known for their National Apprenticeship Week Videos. They bring fun and creativity to something that they are very passionate about, and believe me 2021 is no exception!

In the past I have just watched from afar and waited in the wings for Nicholas and Carlos and their team to release their latest blockbuster, but this year having made the move from Maryland to Texas to work with this great team, I have seen first hand the effort and the thinking that goes behind what we all love to see.

ACS is one of the Nations leading Apprenticeship and Workforce intermediaries, and they will continue to bring creativity, quality and be right up front, leading the expansion of registered apprenticeships, as employers continue to see apprenticeships as a key strategic alternative to their “normal dated” recruitment methodology.

Please also watch out for a further “amazing” video where you will meet one of our inspirational apprentices who with ACS and his employer has changed his life through being part of an apprenticeship.

It’s an honor to be part of ACS and to still be playing a role in apprenticeships that change so many lives every year.
