Apprentice Joiner Tom on the importance of taking opportunities #NAW2018

The opportunity of a trade apprenticeship is one not to pass up.

My apprenticeship has been a great help as it given me the opportunity to learn a trade that will stay with me throughout my working life. I have noticed a massive improvement in my joinery capabilities since I first started; growing in confidence as the months pass. This confidence in turn allows me to further develop my skills and set me up for a successful career.

I would highly recommend an apprenticeship to others and I am glad to have taken the opportunity. I am grateful to Plus Dane for the chance they took on me and for their continued support. The on the job training is where I have been able to develop; in particularly, gaining valuable site experience on the some of our most recent developments. With more development and renovation projects coming up, I'm excited for more opportunities to develop my skills as I work towards gaining my Level 3 joinery qualification.
