When I first started this course I didn’t know anything about construction but now I have gained skills and a qualification.
I’ve lived in Woolwich, South East London for 22 years and left Woolwich Polytechnic school in 2013. I started work as a swimming pool engineer which I really enjoyed but due to that only being a summer job I had to leave. I then continued to work for the Royal Borough of Greenwich for 5 years, but decided I wanted to change my role completely and was referred to Flower Skills through Jobcentre Plus.
I started my course with Flower Skills with no knowledge of working on a construction site or health and safety within a construction site (apart from building swimming pools) and already within 2 weeks have gained a Level 1 qualification in bricklaying and tiling along with my CSCS card which I passed today! The course was very helpful and I gained a lot of knowledge and skills which will help me with my future roles. I’m currently going to start work on a demolition site as a laborer in the next couple of weeks.
