The programme

BasWorx is designed to provide opportunities for our trainees to build up their work experience and to learn the transferable skills required in order to secure an apprenticeship or employment on completion.

As a BasWorx trainee you will deliver a wide range of exterior and interior decorating work including painting, alongside some general repairs and maintenance work to Basildon Council. In partnership with a local training provider you will have a taster of what it’s like to work in the industry. Alongside the work programme we will support you to achieve your CSCS card, and where required reach the necessary levels of Maths and English to be eligible to further your career.


 Launched in

For every £1 spent in Basildon we re-invest £2.61 into the local economy.
