Getting the apprenticeship forced Ryan to get into a schedule/routine – this made him feel as though he was doing something with his life. He felt happier.
“I have always been quite focussed and knew that I wanted to get into Carpentry and potentially Site Management one day so I researched apprenticeships and approached K10.
Four more K10 Apprentices have graduated at Woodberry Down making the total 10 for this year. Berkeley Homes and K10 celebrated with a small ceremony yesterday afternoon.
Humaira joined K10 just under a year ago and at that point was determined to enter the Business Administration profession but was being met with that all-too-common obstacle from potential employers; “you don’t have enough experience”.
“I decided to bring some focus to my job search and went to a K10 workshop to learn more about the scheme and the opportunities that were available to someone like me. From there I was invited to interview, to talk more about my career goals, passions and how I saw my career in construction developing. I managed to get my enthusiasm across and with the support from the team at K10 I chose to train as a Site Engineer.
Speaking at the campus, the Minister thanked staff and employers for their work in delivering apprenticeships and said it was important providers continue to “make sure everybody understands how brilliant apprenticeships can be for young people”
