LASC Apprentice, Harry, Starts his Scaffolding Career Journey

Scaffolding Apprentice, Harry, has recently completed his Part 1a training at SIMIAN’s London Academy of Sustainable Construction (LASC), paving the way for a thriving scaffolding career.

Having previously worked at Tesco, Harry chose to enter the scaffolding industry for the improved opportunities and better pay that it could offer. After finding employment with Redrow, Harry’s employers chose SIMIAN to provide him with the training that will help him to take the next step on his career ladder.

Harry was initially worried that finances would become a barrier to his training, so he was pleased to learn that his apprenticeship is fully funded and all it would cost him was hard work, application and commitment to learning.

Speaking of his time at LASC, Harry has said:

“SIMIAN has helped me to gain a better understanding of not only scaffolding, but they have also supported me towards achieving my Maths and English qualifications, which are a crucial part of the apprenticeship.

The apprenticeship requires good levels of teamwork, so my communication has improved, and I have gained more confidence in my work, particularly in taking on harder tasks that I wouldn’t have previously been able to complete.”

Harry is now back on site, gaining invaluable practical scaffolding experience, and we look forward to welcoming him back to complete Part 1b of his apprenticeship in the Summer, when he’ll get the opportunity to put that practical experience to the test!
