Completed his Level 3 Team Leader course in February 2023.

“I was searching for apprenticeships on the Government website and Wolseley was definitely one of the more appealing companies I came across. The apprenticeship on offer was just what I was looking for. It covers all sorts like what motivates people, time management, personal development. It’s very theoretical but the modules are relevant to the day job and they give you all the tools you need to manage people and projects.”
