EN:Able Futures welcomed their Training Support and Site Assistant Tristan Cudbertson in October 2021 as part of the Kickstart Initiative. 

In his role he will be supporting staff, learners, and visitors on site. He will also support the running of the Construction training facility.

Tristan will be working closely with the EN:Able Futures team to assist with site welfare checks, monitoring trainees doing training to ensure that they get their correct virtual training course and complete them.

Tristan graduated from Kingswood Academy and has experience in bricklaying and engineering as he completed these courses during his time at college.

When he’s not providing all his great support to the team, he enjoys going the gym, fishing and going for walks with his friends when the weather permits and sometimes liked to play video games.

We asked Tristan how he’s found his Kickstart journey  so far:

“My experience so far has been great; everyone has been very friendly and welcomed me instantly and I have found the work and workplace very enjoyable.

Eddy has really made easier for me he has shown me how to do so many things, so I go to him for support.”

It’s wonderful to hear Tristan has had a good experience so far and seems to be progressing very well and adjusting to his new career.

Tristan told us about some challenges he’s faced as a new Kickstarter:

“I had some challenges understanding certain things such as the websites, but I was able to solve them with help and guidance.”

“Tristan has already become an important part of the team working on CS4L, looking forward to working with him more whilst he is on his Kickstart placement.”
