What We Offer

Everyone within the Barratt Group has access to all the learning and development they need to build a successful career with us. We welcome fresh thinking and recognise talent when we see it. And we look for initiative. If you embody these qualities then we have no doubt you’ll succeed with us.

So whether you need training in customer experience, leadership or anything in between, we’ll provide you with the knowledge you need to progress.


Barratt Academy

At the heart of our training programme is our Barratt Academy. Working in partnership with CITB – the Sector Skills Council for Construction – we offer industry-leading training through our range of programmes. These are designed for those in Sales, Customer Service, Construction, Land, Technical and Commercial disciplines. We also offer a transition programme into site management for the Armed Forces community. Each programme features both classroom and on-the-job training, and your development is overseen by a Director. It demonstrates just how seriously we take your progression.


The training I've had since joining Barratt; I've had quite a lot. I've done the 'single sales principle' course, and most recently the 'stepping into management' course, which has provided me with a lot of knowledge, right up to being signed off as a full manager.
