Terry Dunn – Apprentice Carpenter
In 2023, Terry began his apprenticeship with K10, joining South Eastern Carpentry Ltd (SEC) for hands-on experience on two Wates Group projects, Solar Serena Sunrise and Gascoigne West Phase 2 in London. B&Q, a construction industry supporter are funding Terry’s apprenticeship, emphasising their commitment to cultivating new talent.
Throughout his apprenticeship, Terry is showing dedication and adaptability, playing a crucial role in the success of both projects. His experience not only equipped him with practical skills but also provided a deep understanding of the collaborative nature of the construction industry. This case study illustrates the effectiveness of partnerships between training providers, industry players, and committed donors, contributing to the growth of the sector by nurturing skilled professionals like Terry.
‘Being able to work and learn carpentry is amazing and something I have always wanted to. I couldn’t have asked for a better company than K10. Truly I have never felt more welcome at a job in my life, all the staff are so friendly, always checking up on me and giving support, they truly care about their apprentices. I have been on two sites with SEC and they really make you feel like part of the team. The SEC carpenters are more than happy to pass on their knowledge and encourage me to learn and get stuck in. Overall, it’s been pretty amazing and I’m really happy with this opportunity’. Terry, Carpentry Apprentice
