I got my dream job through @Apprenticeships…..
- Rebecca Wright, studied the City and Guilds NVQ L2 Business/Admin – Apprenticeship and won Tresham's Apprentice of the Year Award for 2011 last summer.
“The course is very relevant to my job. You are treated like an adult at college but access all the help and support at the same time. Although a more informal environment, it's been hard work but rewarding and I have gained more confidence along the way."
Rebecca is now studying the Level 3 Advanced Apprenticeship whilst continuing to work at the Finedon Mulso Junior School as their Administration Assistant.
- Billy Murphy, a former Apprentice at Uist Carpentry between 2007 – 2010 and now working full time for the company said:
“I had already spent time before become an apprentice building in my own time and I really enjoyed the practical way of learning. Being an apprentice at Tresham gave me a chance to learn about all aspects including roofing and specific tasks in Carpentry which I would work on straight away on sites. I would definitely recommend studying an apprenticeship with Tresham and the theory training you are given is very good so you are prepared to put it into practice.
The best way to learn is to go out and do it. There are so many different tasks involved in one job which you don't get to learn until your working on them so being an apprentice means you get the qualifications and experience just three years after leaving school."
- Dak Mapson, who now owns his own building company, and a former Brickwork Apprentice between 2006 – 2010 with Barratt Homes.
“I decided to learn through an apprenticeship to get better experience on site and by doing the actual job. As an apprentice I was able to learn a lot more on the job and got paid whilst learning as well as get the CSCS card which you need to get onto building sites. Since completing the Advanced Apprenticeship I have set up my own business and have encouraged my younger brother who works for me to learn as an apprentice too. He is really enjoying it and after just six months apprentices are able to help you more than you need to help them."
