Brandon rebuilds apprenticeship with Reddish Joinery

Brandon, a joinery student at Tameside College, has been offered an apprenticeship with Reddish Joinery.

A former St Thomas More pupil, Brandon progressed into an apprenticeship earlier this year, following full time study at Tameside College. Unfortunately, due to the coronavirus pandemic, Brandon was made redundant after being furloughed.

It was hard work paid off for Brandon, who sent his CV out to various employers. Reddish Joinery offered him a two week trial at the company, before giving him the opportunity to continue as an apprentice.

A very driven person, Brandon will now be able to complete his course with Reddish Joinery. In the future, he wishes to be a full time bench joiner.

Brandon said: “My tutors are very supportive, welcoming and easy to approach.

I chose to go into joinery because I like the hands on approach to work.”

Neil Harrison, joinery teacher at Tameside College, said: “Brandon has proved that losing your employment doesn’t mean the end of your apprenticeship.

He has endeavoured to gain new employment with a fantastic local joinery company, which will offer him the opportunity to develop his joinery techniques and also gain the experience to complete his qualification here at Tameside College.”
