Ryan Wallis completes with Wates

Getting the apprenticeship forced Ryan to get into a schedule/routine – this made him feel as though he was doing something with his life. He felt happier.


Congratulations to Camilo – our latest Completer.

“I have always been quite focussed and knew that I wanted to get into Carpentry and potentially Site Management one day so I researched apprenticeships and approached K10.


Berkeley Homes & K10 celebrate yet more Apprentice success stories.

Four more K10 Apprentices have graduated at Woodberry Down making the total 10 for this year. Berkeley Homes and K10 celebrated with a small ceremony yesterday afternoon.


Hats off to Humaira – the latest K10 Completer.

Humaira joined K10 just under a year ago and at that point was determined to enter the Business Administration profession but was being met with that all-too-common obstacle from potential employers; “you don’t have enough experience”.


Congratulations Simon On. The latest K10 Success Story.

“I decided to bring some focus to my job search and went to a K10 workshop to learn more about the scheme and the opportunities that were available to someone like me. From there I was invited to interview, to talk more about my career goals, passions and how I saw my career in construction developing. I managed to get my enthusiasm across and with the support from the team at K10 I chose to train as a Site Engineer.
