Alex popped in to register as he was keen to secure an Apprenticeship. He was unsure exactly what he wanted to do but he knew that he enjoyed outdoor work.
A short time later Morrison Construction approached CEIS Ayrshire looking for 2 young people for Construction Apprenticeships. Alex seemed extremely keen after explaining that if he was successful he would be expected to do a 3 week work trial. Following an interview with Tigers Training – Alex was offered the work trial; we explained that this was the employer’s opportunity to assess his reliability and enthusiasm. We also put Alex through his CSCS test as he could not get onto a construction site without this and gave him travel expenses to get to the trial.
On the completion of the 3 week trial Alex was taken on – full time – as an Apprentice, he will be trained in all aspects of construction. The feedback from the employer has been fantastic – stating that they will use CEIS in the future when they have vacancies.
