Luke completes apprenticeship with flying colours

Brickwork apprentice at Tameside College overcomes adversity to complete apprenticeship with flying colours.

Luke Doyle, an apprentice with Cara Brickwork, has completed the last stage of his apprenticeship, despite being made redundant part way through his qualification.

When Luke began his apprenticeship, his first employer ceased trading, meaning he had to find a new position. Despite this, Luke used his initiative to find a role with Cara Brickwork and continue his training.

Luke gained a distinction grade in his final apprenticeship skills test. Now that Luke has completed his apprenticeship, he has taken on a full time role with the company as a fully qualified bricklayer.

Paul Howarth, brickwork apprenticeship assessor at Tameside College, said: “Luke overcame adversity and quickly found new employment in order to fulfil his apprenticeship requirements. He was always dedicated to his training both in college and in the workplace, asking questions and ensuring his work was completed to the highest possible standards. His dedication and eagerness to learn and progress is testament to this. Congratulations to Luke.”
