I like to update Facebook, instagram and twitter with my daily experiences, and although a picture can tell a thousand words, sometimes you want to know the story behind it – hence the blog.
My blog is aimed at fellow plasterers, customers, friends and most importantly, anybody who would like to enter the plastering trade – especially females.
Business Owner Steph aims for Higher Degree Apprenticeship at Wigan & Leigh College
Steph joined the College’s exciting Level 3 Apprenticeship in Plastering with hopes of carving a career in the construction industry.
Steph says, “It is so easy to be a mature student at the College; I don’t get treated any differently. Things are changing constantly in the industry with new and different products, there is no replacement for education and everything I am learning in College is relevant for my workplace. An apprenticeship is not just for young people, it’s for all ages.”
Steph attends the College’s Centre for Construction & Engineering once a week and is really keen to develop her skills further and to progress onto a degree level course on completion of her apprenticeship. The ambitious apprentice has already started her own business in plastering but wants to continue her studies to ensure she’s top of her trade.
Steph would recommend an apprenticeship to anyone of any age. She was nervous at first but her assessor David Winchester ensured her that the framework was correct for her level and he was able to support her throughout.
