1. Please give an overview of your role and what this involves on a day-to-day basis:


During my work day I usually get paired off with either a tradesman or another apprentice and we’re usually allocated tasks, some take longer than other so you can be working away at something for a couple of days, the supervisor may come round every now and then to inspect your work and just to see how you are getting on.

I have learned many different skills and gained a greater understanding of my trade since being here. I have became a lot more confident in myself and my ability to work, I’ve also gained a good work ethic within the work place
