Building for success

Ten young apprentices were presented with certificates recognising their achievements at Weedington Road tenants’ hall on Friday 13 March. 

The Leader of Camden Council, Councillor Sarah Hayward, who presented the awards with Terry Wiggett, chair of Gospel Oak District Management Committee said:

“Many congratulations to the apprentices and employers. Camden is a fantastic place and has the potential to offer a wealth of opportunity to the next generation. We recognise that apprenticeships provide an excellent way for businesses to tackle skills shortages, succeed and grow.“

"Apprentices also make loyal employees who are eager to prove the value of the investment their employers have made in them.”

The apprentices are working towards completing their Level 2 Framework Maintenance Operations Apprenticeship. They have already gained their health and safety cards and obtained their Construction Skills Certification Scheme (CSCS).The skills and experience they are gaining should help them get jobs in the industry when their apprenticeships are over. Recently, the apprentices were helping to redecorate a community hall in Camden.
