Joinery NVQ and Awards for Outstanding Apprentices in the Construction Industry

Joinery NVQ

All too often, apprentices are thought of as nothing more than rookies and not given anywhere near the recognition they deserve.  Kier Building Maintenance recognises the positive impact that apprentices can have on their companies and have helped their apprentices to celebrate their successes at awards ceremonies across the UK.

Construction NVQs – Construction Awards Ceremonies for Apprentices

Awards in several different categories were given at each ceremony.  The Young Builder of the Year, Achievement in the Face of Adversity, and Apprentice of the Year are some of the most well known and prestigious awards.

The awards are given to those who have truly made an effort- they are in no way easy to achieve.  The Young Builder of the Year is required to spend hour after hour week after week working on projects and proving his skills.

The Achievement in the Face of Adversity is awarded to someone who has made substantial accomplishments in their field all while dealing with difficult personal circumstances.  These are people for whom their chosen trade is much more than just a part time job-it’s their whole life.

Construction NVQs – The Future for Trainee Construction Workers

Not only do the Kier Building Maintenance ceremonies recognise the progress that trainees have made and the milestones they’ve achieved, they also showcase the formal qualifications they have made.   Simon Bullen, the East regional managing director for Kier Building Maintenance stated that they are happy to take on apprentices because they “…provide us with invaluable fresh talent which drives our business forward…we are always looking for enthusiastic youngsters…”  The apprentices who took part in the ceremonies this year were at all different ages and stages, yet were all on the same path towards becoming expert professionals in their fields and acquiring industry recognised certifications.

Many of the apprentices present were specialising in the field of joinery.  At just 16 years old, Jordan Dean was named Young Builder of the Year in his age group.  He began his apprenticeship last August with Kier Sheffield and is furthering his joinery skills working on portable cabins.  By the time he has finished his apprenticeship, Dean will be ready for an on the job assessment to receive his Joinery NVQ – something that most professionals spend years trying to acquire or never acquire at all.

Employers Want To See a Joinery NVQ

Imagine you are an employer interviewing Jordan Dean- he has been the recipient of a prestigious award, has years of experience, is young and full of fresh perspective, and he has an  NVQ in Joinery in his pocket.  Needless to say, Jordan Dean will never have trouble finding employment if he sticks to the path he’s currently on.

Too many professionals today underestimate the importance of an NVQ.  As a joiner, having a Joinery NVQ Level 3 tells prospective employers that you genuinely care about your field of work and have taken the time to prove it to yourself and to them.

Kier Building Maintenance is a company that is always ready and willing to accept new apprentices.  In fact, they took on 19 new apprentices in 2010 alone.  Their only stipulation is that you truly have a desire to excel and progress in the industry and are willing to work towards certifications such as the Joinery NVQ Level 2 to make sure that the time they invest in you is worthwhile and no opportunity passes you by.
