Jabari Brown

Age: 23

Trade: Dryliner

Apprenticeship: Level 2 Interior Systems

College: MRG

Background: Jabari was always interested in working within construction. He was employed as a labourer which was his first job and then worked on another site for 18 months getting experience as a Dryliner. Jabari enjoyed it so much; he applied for an Apprenticeship to get a qualification within this trade.

What happened next: Jabari was invited in for an interview and passed with flying colours, he was then placed on a site in his home borough of Southwark to complete his Level 2 Interior Systems Apprenticeship.

During the Apprenticeship: Jabari had been enrolled on to the Level 2 Interior Systems apprenticeship, which was for 12 months. He was working full time on site, but was given coursework from our chosen college MRG to complete by the time an assessor visited him on site.

“The apprenticeship gave me the confidence I needed, I was so happy to be working on a site and get a qualification in a trade I love. There was always a varied amount of work for me to do on site, and I had a supportive supervisor too. I would definitely say to any future apprentice’s to go out and get some tools within the first few months of the Apprenticeship though.  I also had an Apprenticeship Manager at the K10 office, who kept in contact with me weekly. K10 set up football matches with all of their apprentices and staff in the office; it’s a great way for all of us to get to know each other!” – Jabari Brown

After the Apprenticeship: Jabari completed the Level 2 Interior Systems Apprenticeship in 12 months, and wanted to get into Site Management. Luckily for him, K10 had just had an opportunity become available in Southwark so he started working there within a week, and we enrolled him onto the Level 3 Business Administration Apprenticeship. He was doing so well there, the company took him on direct within 6 months! Jabari has now been given a company car and is now earning a whopping £27k.

Congratulations Jabari, without your dedication and commitment this couldn’t have happened!
