TEC apprentices turn TV stars

We checked in with our apprentices, David, Rowan (both aged 17) and Lewis (aged 18) to find out what it’s like being a part of the TEC Apprenticeship Programme. From what a typical day involves for them onsite, to discussing their hopes for the future, the TEC apprentices hope to inspire others considering taking the first steps into the construction industry.

Filmed as part of a new video series, focusing on the importance of nurturing the next generation of construction workers, our apprentices also shared details of their experiences of working and learning alongside the TEC team, as well as offering advice to those thinking about a career in construction.

We also had the opportunity to see them in action at one of our most recent, ongoing projects, Portland Villas at Plymouth University – where extensive renovation and refurbishment works are taking place at several key campus buildings – where they are putting their new skills into practice under the guidance of our team.

With the South West needing over 3,200 more workers to meet construction demand by 2025, we are proud to be investing in the industry’s future talent with our longstanding TEC Apprenticeship Programme. As well as equipping young people with the skills needed to progress professionally, the scheme also provides valuable practical experience onsite, as well as work experience opportunities for those wanting to find out more about the industry

Senior TEC team members including Operations Director, Martin Bowman, and Contract Manager, Rob Gutteridge, also provided their insight about the importance of supporting young people into the industry, as well as giving their advice to other businesses considering taking on an apprentice.
