Ask an apprentice - Jason
Meet our apprentices - Jason
Our Apprentice Bricklayer, Jason, joined the Group in 2021 after receiving support from Progress Futures and the Kickstart initiative. Jason worked in our Caretaker Team before being successful at interview for his apprenticeship:
“I worked as an Estate Caretaker Assistant at Progress Housing Group as part of the Kickstart scheme before applying for this apprenticeship. I’ve always thought it would be really good to get into bricklaying and the apprenticeship has been great so far, I’m enjoying it a lot.
“The whole Property Services Team has been really supportive. If people can see I might be struggling to understand anything, they step in and guide me so that I learn, instead of just doing it for me.
“I’m hopeful and feeling positive for the future that I’ll pass my apprenticeship qualifications and make a great career out of it.
“At high school, I always wanted to get into the trades, so now that I’m here and I’m doing just that, it’s a really proud feeling.”
