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
Since BasWorx Launch in 2016 we have provided full time employment to over 12 local residents.


BasWorx has seen over 30 candidates through 4 Cohorts of traineeships. The BasWorx work to learn programme consists of two routes. The traineeship route and the work academy route.


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