Morgan Syms

Technical Apprentice working for Willmott Dixon

Working on the refurbishment of Plymouth History Centre

“The tradesmen on site are keen to get me involved and they have all been pleased to help me learn and grow. It has been great to see a job through to the finish and a real confidence boost to know that the contractors have such faith in my abilities and could see that I have worked hard.”

Along with working on a variety of sites across the region, Morgan also spends one day a week studying towards his Apprentice Carpenter Level 2 NVQ at Exeter College. He is also hoping to continue on and complete his Level 3 Diploma, which could allow him to take on a more supervisory role.

“More people should look at the possibility of an apprenticeship. I have learned so many new, practical skills that I wouldn’t have got from traditional classroom qualifications. The skills I have learnt will take me wherever I want to go. I am interested in working abroad and I know that my carpentry can be adapted to suit many different roles.”
