Meet Our Apprentices


Say hello to a few of our current apprentices:


‘The training is so much more than teaching. I’ve learnt a lot fast from shadowing other colleagues – no two days are alike!’ - Luis De Vasco, Apprentice Neighbourhood Assistant



‘The value for me is that I have the opportunity to learn and get to see all parts of the business, and a chance to get experience to see where my interests and capabilities lie for my future career in housing.’ - Thomas Leadbeater, Apprentice Neighbourhood Assistant


‘I had been out of work for a short while and wanted to do something different, as I had previously thought about a degree but it seemed too expensive. I thought that I would be suited to support work, and was told about the apprenticeships at Connect.’ - Gemma Dover, Apprentice Housing Support Worker



‘I’m finding the NVQ exciting. It’s good to have time to reflect on what we’ve done and work with a whole range of staff across Connect on visits, helping tenants over the phone, looking at rent payments and seeing the systems and processes we use.’ - Anthony Dilworth, Apprentice Neighbourhood Assistant


‘I enjoy working on site, and feel I can gain a lot more knowledge from the people on the job rather than trying to learn everything at college.’ - Ed Wragg, Apprentice Painter and Decorator


‘The main thing I have learned is to be confident with myself. My joinery skills in general have grown and will continue to grow, as I feel Connect offer me a massive opportunity.’ - Kieran Bell, Apprentice Joiner
