Matthew is a Trainee at the Newground Skillsbuild Centre, working towards a City and Guilds Level 1 Certificate in Basic Construction Skills, Level 1 in Functional skills and an NCFE Level 1 Award in Employability Skills.
As part of his work experience, he too has a placement at Gordon Place, working with Riddale Ltd Groundwork Contractors. Riddale has been so impressed with his work they’ve offered him an apprenticeship placement. As part of this, he’ll be working towards his General Construction Officer qualification at Doncaster College.
Matthew comments: “I’m enjoying working with the Groundworkers and learning about the job. I’m willing to volunteer for longer as I know this will help me to prove myself. Thank you to Dale and the team for this opportunity.”
Dale Ellis of Riddale says:“Matthew has really impressed us with his enthusiasm to learn. He is working alongside a skilled and experienced gang so he is learning from the best! We wish him all the best with the placement.”
