Thomas Gough who is 37 years old is currently finishing off phase one of Groundworks and Plant before progressing to phase two.
Having heard about this opportunity through his work coach at the Jobcentre and already having an interest in construction, Thomas saw this as a window of opportunity. Thomas said: “Already having my CSCS card I wanted to step onto the ladder in construction and make progress.”
Thomas is enjoying the course in particular the practical element. He hopes to go straight into employment upon completing the course.
Having worked in different jobs outside of the construction sector, Thomas rates the course and said: “Definitely give the course a go as it gives an insight into construction, that’s why I have done it. Give it a go and see if you like it, tutors are really nice and they make a difference to our learning.”
