Job Title: Construction Site Supervisor Apprentice
Employer: Countryside Properties Plc
About my job
The first couple of months have been extremely useful and I have found NHBC’s training team really helpful. They have answered any queries I’ve had, usually straight away and even in cases when it’s been out of their usual hours, such as weekends.
We have a weekly Zoom call on a range of different modules and with a number of different tutors, which means that together with all of the other apprentices we are really tapping into a vast range of skills and knowledge.
Feedback is provided from the presentations we record and upload online and so far the process has been pretty seamless.
My ambition is to work up through the ranks over the next few years once my apprenticeship scheme concludes in October 2021 – hopefully to the role of Project Manager or Contracts Manager. My ultimate aim is to one day be recognised by NHBC’s Pride in the Job Awards.
The modules we’ve completed so far have covered Health & Safety and we will be handing in module two - Effective Communication and Teamwork in January.
I would thoroughly recommend NHBC’s Apprenticeship scheme to anyone looking to develop a career in house building and I am certainly benefitting from being involved, even at this early stage.
