A couple of weeks ago Leigh, our apprentice and myself sat a Surveyor course (one day course) delivered to us by Andy Clegg from the Fenestration College. We thought that all of us doing it would be a good idea, there is no harm in learning all you can, Leigh and I feel it’s good for our business to have a well-rounded team that knows a bit of everything but all also have our own area’s of expertise which can only be good! Plus it makes things a little easier on Leigh as he is having to train everyone but also work at a reasonable speed :s
Anyway the course was very well delivered, easy to understand and professional all you need to do is try to remember it all. Our Apprentice Nick did very well and is eager to learn which Andy picked up on, It must be easier to teach those willing to learn over those who have been made to sit the course.
So moving on from the course now, Nick and I are working on our Fenestration Apprenticeships and Leigh is working on his Surveying, by the end of the year our business should have three completed Apprenticeships and one NVQ plus the Surveyor one day course!
If you are interested in doing any courses there are a list of them here www.fenestration-college.co.uk/
