Partners Testimonials

  • Kenny Healey

    Works Manager, BAM Nuttall Ltd

    “In partnership with K10 we have been able to provide opportunities for over 30 construction operatives on the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. I have seen the benefit of having bespoke pre-employment training. Apprentices came to site with an understanding of their framework and it enabled them to integrate into our existing workforce quickly becoming productive members of the team.”

  • Steve Coles

    Managing Director, Intentionality Community Interest Company

    “It was clear at my first meeting with K10, a number of years ago now, that they were deeply committed to putting positive social impact at the heart of their operations and business model. They were among the first social enterprises we worked with to embed measures of well-being into their day-to-day processes with applicants and apprentices, and since then they’ve expanded their impact measurement to include a wider range of stakeholders: partner colleges, major contractors, Housing Associations and Local Authorities. In 2013 K10 invited us to undertake a full Social Return on Investment (SROI) analysis of their operations, demonstrating a desire to listen to stakeholders, to learn and to lead to greater social impact. The conclusions of that SROI were compelling – not only does K10 generate a positive SROI, it does so by actually creating jobs for young people where none would have otherwise existed. The difference made by K10 in the lives of young people, particularly in a time of high youth unemployment, is incredible and the impact on society more broadly is considerable. I highly commend them”.

  • Roy Ramrutton

    Community Development Manager, Breyer Group Plc.

    “We started working in partnership with K10 in 2010. My aim was to secure the services of an ATA to complement Breyer Groups, 360 Degree Apprenticeship Programme (which was recently highly commended by National Apprenticeship Service, 2013).

    Having seen first-hand, K10’s Pre-screening process I knew I would get a learner who was keen to learn, committed and dependable.

    In addition to its Pre-screening service, K10 offer on-going support alongside the training and mentoring we provide.

    We currently have several trade apprentices deployed on a number of our schemes and what is re-assuring is the knowledge that once a scheme has finished, REDS10 will find another host for the apprentice to ensure continuity for the learner.

    A shining example of our successful and continued partnership is Syma Khatun who has achieved her NVQ Level 2 Apprenticeship in Plumbing and has since been employed directly by Breyer Group where she learnt her trade.

    I recommend K10 to my colleagues, clients and counter parts because of their passion, commitment and outreach work – which means that we are able to target those who may not always get the same life chances as others.”

  • Paula Aldridge

    National Community Investment Manager, Wates Group

    “Wates initially engaged with K10 on a project where K10 were appointed by the client to provide an ATA to all of the contractors working across the project. As the individual responsible for apprentices across the Wates group it became apparent to me that this approach may be something that could support the business more broadly. We went through a tendering process to identify an ATA to work across the business in which K10 were successful in winning. We are now working in partnership across all of the Wates projects in London and the South East and have created a toolkit for the projects to make the process of engagement easier. The creation of the WATA (Wates Apprenticeship Training Agency) has allowed our project teams and supply chain to embrace the apprentice agenda on a larger scale and the process of ‘hosting ‘ an apprentice on our projects has become fully  integrated within the teams.”

  • Alan Wood

    Programme Manager, Croydon Economic Development Company

    ”Croydon Council has worked with K10 (formerly REDS10) on the Council’s Urban Regeneration Vehicle Partnership programme for over two years. K10 has provided an effective service for the creation of apprenticeships in the construction sector. By overcoming the challenge of the short term nature of sub-contractor contracts that make up main construction programmes, the K10 model has ensured that apprentices are successfully engaged and sustained.

    The CCURV/K10 relationship has proved successful, such that the model will be applied to other Council capital schemes . On the 7 March 2014, Croydon Council signed a Service Level Agreement for K10 to provide apprenticeship support on future development schemes linked to the Council.

    Croydon is on the brink of a major investment in the town centre, which will reshape and define the state of Croydon’s future in terms of economic growth, physical regeneration and community cohesion. It is anticipated that there will be significant apprenticeship opportunities. K10 will play a key role in securing those opportunities.“

  • Rob Bowley

    Head of Employment, London Borough of Waltham Forest

    “Waltham Forest Council has been working with K10 for a number of years and they have always delivered against difficult targets even in an economic downturn in recent years. Whilst ensuring that the young people on their programmes get the right support and guidance, K10 have also gone the extra mile in ensuring that they support Waltham Forest and its partners with their wider employment strategy. In the last year this has led to a 26% fall in unemployment claimant rates and a 32% fall in youth unemployment.”

  • Dennis Hone

    Chief Executive, London Legacy Development Corporation

    “The LLDC is committed to Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park creating job and apprenticeship opportunities and contributing to the regeneration of east London. In 2013 the LLDC were able to deliver the highest number of apprentices on a single site in London and our partnership with K10 was key to that success. With K10 we were able to provide contractors with a tailored and responsive delivery model that allowed for the creation of apprenticeship opportunities that would not otherwise have been delivered.”
