Celebrating National Apprenticeship Week

To celebrate National Apprenticeship Week, we caught up with Max Bressington who is about to complete his apprenticeship with us (and is now one of our BIM Technicians). He explains a bit more about his course and how much he enjoyed it…

His course: HNC Construction & The Built Environment (Civil Engineering), City of Bristol College 📚✍🏻👷

“I began my apprenticeship in September 2021. The HNC Civil Engineering day release course was a great choice for me, as whilst gaining technical experience with Craddys in my day-to-day role, and studying at college on a part time basis, it enabled me to further my knowledge and skills in construction and progress within the industry.

In order to successfully complete the HNC award I had to study 8 modules, which were assessed through different ways including essays, presentations, and reports. I successfully completed my HNC Civil Engineering Apprenticeship in June 2023, and now look forward to completing the final part of my apprenticeship – the End Point Assessment.

Completing the HNC Civil Engineering Apprenticeship was challenging, but worth it. It has provided me with invaluable experience and practical skills, allowing me to develop a deeper understanding of the intricacies of becoming an Engineering Technician.

Throughout the apprenticeship, I was fully supported by Craddys and I’ve had the opportunity to work alongside experienced mentors who have shared their knowledge and expertise, which accelerated my learning process. Moreover, earning my HNC qualification signifies a significant achievement, demonstrating my dedication, commitment, and capability to my employer.

Whilst still early in my career, completing my apprenticeship has instilled a sense of pride and confidence in my abilities, setting a solid foundation for a hopefully successful career ahead”.

Max was our first Craddys apprentice, we are happy to announce that we have another starting with us in September and have plans to soon offer apprenticeship opportunities in all of our offices 😊
