‘If I didn’t work for K10 I wouldn’t be where I am now. They have a great team and I would recommend anyone who wants to do an apprenticeship to join the K10  programme. Within the space of a year, I went from doing Level 2 Dry Lining to Construction Management which shows anything is possible’ – Jabari

‘The best way to sum up the importance of Jabari is a quote from Napoleon Hill, “If you can’t do great things, do small things in a great way.” Jabari understands that even  the smallest contributions can make the biggest difference in a team, and that is what Jabari is. A true team player’ – Ethan Deal, Site Manager

‘Lisa is a valued member of my team, she is hard working and conscientious, taking on tasks and completing them on time and to a good standard with very little input from myself. I would  like to take this opportunity to congratulate Lisa on this award and hope she keeps up the good work’ – Colin Young
