Marley has always had dreams of becoming a Carpenter. He had experience on site prior to K10 as a labourer, but he wanted to learn a trade, and follow his true passion which was Carpentry. Marley started his apprenticeship with K10 and impressed from the very beginning. It was no suprise that he completed his apprenticeship with flying colors and is now working as a Carptenter full time.

This is what Marley had to say about his time with K10 “My experience as an apprentice was amazing.  It was extremely hard work, but compeleting the apprenticeship was an amazing accomplishment. I was able to acheive this with the help of K10, helping me every step of the way!”

Marley also had some advice for our current apprentices “Don’t give up! It won’t be easy but what you’re going to accomplish is going to be so worth it.”

Peter Bannister, who managed Marley throughout his apprenticeship had this to say about him “Marley is a very determined individual who performed remarkebly well throughout his apprenticeship. K10 are very proud of what he has acheived.”
