Apprentices join WDH permanently
23 December 2014
Four apprentices have signed permanent contracts with WDH following three-year trade apprenticeships.
The group - 19-year-old plasterer Andrew Rhodes, 24-year-old bricklayer Todd Williams, and joiners Gareth Box, 23 and Brandon Kane, 22 – join the organisation having gained level 3 qualifications in their chosen trades. Kevin Dodd, WDH Chief Executive recently joined the men to wish them well and co-sign their contracts.
Whilst undertaking their apprenticeships Brandon and Todd both helped WDH promote the organisation’s vocational training programme by hosting school talks and taking part in the 2014 Brathay Apprenticeship Challenge.
Kevin Dodd said:
“All four men have done really well to earn contracts here and it’s great for our current crop of apprentices to see what can be achieved with a bit of hard work. Our 2015 apprenticeship programme opens in a few months, and we’re hoping to take on even more young people from the area who too want to learn a trade.”
