What do you enjoy the most about being an Apprentice? My favourite part about being an apprentice is that no two days are ever the same. The job has an enormous amount of variety, with new always challenges presenting themselves. The job also allows me to deal with and work alongside a wide range of trades and accomplish working alongside the opposite gender.
I am in my fourth year of my Apprenticeship, and I have undertaken and learnt cladding, second fix and first fix. I have enjoyed learning the trade, and am feeling confident within myself and in the consultation process with fellow team members.
What is your goal once you have completed your Apprenticeship? I would like to continue my working career with AJ Carpenters, utilising the skills and knowledge I have gained through my apprenticeship to further my career and maybe one day commence my own business.
Who would you like to thank? I would like to start by thanking Master Builders for their support and Suzanne Moore my Field coordinator, for mentoring me to be the best I can be, as well as AJ Carpentry for assisting and supporting me in my Apprenticeship.
Finally I would like to thank my family, especially my dad for his continual support, faith and encouragement for me throughout my apprenticeship.
What does safety mean to you? To ensure we all make it home safely at the end of the day, it demands the highest level of safety at all times – to keep not only ourselves, but those around us out of harms way. This Apprenticeship has given me a worldly experience on commercial sites.
