Dylan and Kian joined us in January as Level 2 apprentice working with the Tolent Group in Batley on a new housing development on Corfe Close. They are both 2nd year apprentices and were out of placement so with the help of Leeds College of Building we recruited two great apprentices that come with lots of experience. Kian is a keen rugby player and has recently been offered a contract with Keighley Cougars Academy team.
Nishan Digwa started with us on 17th January working as a Gas Engineer with host Sure Maintenance in Leeds. He is now in his 4th year of a Level 3 Domestic plumbing and heating apprenticeship with Leeds College of Building and comes with lots of experience. This opportunity with Sure Maintenance will allow his to focus on the Gas elements of the qualification.
James Dawson is a Level 2 apprentice bricklayer and started with us on 31st January, he is working on the Caddick site in Pontefract but works directly with Tony King Construction to learn the skills of the trade. He is attending Leeds College of Building to gain his apprenticeship qualification.

He will be supported by the training team at Sheffield City Council to gain his qualification.
