A New Lis-a of Life – Lisa Tully Moves on To Bigger and Better Things

Lisa Tully

Age: 25

Trade: Business Administration

Borough: Islington

Apprenticeship: Level 2 and 3 Business Administration

Background: Lisa previously worked part time doing door to door sales as well as being a carer for her father.  She already had a qualification in Carpentry and Joinery. She went travelling and decided that she wanted to finally kick start her career and get into construction.

What happened next: Lisa originally came to K10 to start a carpentry apprenticeship, but when we explained all the other opportunities available to her, she took a liking to Business Administration and started her Level 2 Apprenticeship with host contractor Wates. Lisa then stayed in employment with us and carried on to do her Level 3 Business Administration qualification also with Wates.

During the Apprenticeship: Lisa was then placed on site with Wates Living Space as a Trainee Business Administrator and enrolled with InTraining on a Level 2 course. ‘I really appreciated the opportunity I was given to be able to learn about the industry from the senior members of staff I was placed with in construction, they would always take time to explain the answers to any queries I had, that and the support I got from K10 was what enabled me to complete my apprenticeship. Wates’ were excellent with me on site, everyone was so inclusive and I always had so much support from them. If I could go back I would just reiterate to myself more that it is okay not to know everything straight away as I was an apprentice, this was all so new to me and no-one expected me to be an expert straight away. My assessor encouraged me the whole way through and this encouragement is what I think helped me finish my qualification in twelve months instead of the provided eighteen months. When it comes to K10 I have not a single bad word to say about them.  My Apprenticeship Manager, Peter, was positive and helpful. If I did have a problem, enquiring was so easy because sometimes it can be hard telling your superiors about an issue but I never felt that with Peter, good communication makes everything so much easier.’

After the Apprenticeship:  Lisa completed with Wates with flying colours and said ‘K10 gave me an opportunity to get into construction and further develop my skills and add to my education. This has encouraged me to look into going to university to study construction management to further my career’. She is now still employed by Wates through an agency, on more than double what she was originally earning, still on the site she started her apprenticeship on.

“Lisa was an excellent apprentice from day one. She has worked on a number of different sites with K10 and her professionalism and ability have made Lisa a genuine pleasure to work with. I would like to thank Lisa for all of her hard work and wish her all the best for the future.”  Peter Bannister, Apprenticeship Programme Manager.
