Esh Academy

Esh Academy is the base for our learning and development programmes here at Esh Group. We have a strong tradition of growing our own and many senior managers started in entry-level positions.

Apprenticeships, graduate programmes and staff training are all part of our skills strategy. We want to develop the leaders of the future, develop our existing workforce and recruit young local talent to secure our future.


Training and apprenticeships are important to the strength of Esh Group. Esh Academy is our response to the need for great people in our business.

In 2015, we invested £3.6m in building a home for the Esh Academy at our County Durham headquarters. It’s home to study areas and training facilities for construction, plant operation and materials handling.

The dedicated facility shows how serious we are about nurturing talent and addressing the skills gap in the construction industry.

We work closely with local colleges, the Construction Industry Training Board and training providers to create the most valuable learning.

Esh Academy’s students may be school students, university students, in part time or full time work and may be at a range of different academic stages.

The Esh Academy also welcomes the involvement of business partners, suppliers, subcontractors and families of staff.
