Great to answer questions about apprenticeships in construction – Suzanne Moss, Ringway
Suzanne Moss, Business Manager at Ringway (highway maintenance services), attended a Career WorkOut session with Year 10 students at Sir Herbert Leon Academy.
“As it was National Careers Week, I went online to book up for a Worktree Career WorkOut session and brought along our Business Apprentice Martin.
“As an industry we have quite an aging workforce so it’s important to us we onboard people in the construction industry. Activities in schools like Career WorkOut give us the opportunity and encourage young people to consider construction as an industry.
“Personally, it’s good to be able to influence, in some small way, young people who are thinking about what they’re doing in the future. I can remember not knowing what to do when I was their age. There wasn’t something like Career WorkOut when I was in school.
“It’s not scary, you just need to be open and honest and talk about what you do every day and your own personal situation of what you did when you were their age.
“Todays session was really great for us to have someone like Martin come in and answer questions about apprenticeships.”
