I’ve been on the apprenticeship a few months now and so far it’s going well. At college and on-site, the people are all good, and everyone is helpful. Glad I got the apprenticeship it is going to help get on the trowel so I can build houses when I am qualified.

I’ve been on the apprenticeship since June, the course has been very detailed but is very useful and a great help practically. I have learnt a lot of skills on site and hope to start laying bricks very soon. The support I receive from college staff has been outstanding, they offer assistance in all areas of my life. I would highly recommend the apprenticeship at Buildskill to anyone considering a career in construction.

I started the apprenticeship in January, the work is fun but can be exhausting but at the end of the day, I am making a better me. The training is amazing, I have developed a huge amount from never seeing or having picked up a trowel, to helping build houses, garages and garden walls. I think an apprenticeship with build skill is really good and would recommend it to anyone.

NEECA was introduced to Build Skills through CIBT when Build skills attended both our employer Day and Careers event. Our students can be very challenging and Build Skills have been very supportive towards them. NEECA has had 3 students put on apprenticeships, 3 students attending Traineeships and 1 student on a 14-16 programme to date. NEECA have built close relationships with all staff who we have found both very professional, approachable and incredibly supportive throughout our collaborative working.
