Meet Joe, our Heritage Plasterer apprentice – new addition to the team!
After a long search we have finally found an apprentice to learn our trade and become a Heritage Plasterer. Joe is a local lad, from Northallerton and is 18 years old. Through funding via the CITB (Construction Industry Training Bureau) we have given him his apprenticeship that will eventually take him through to a Level 4 Qualification. With a day a week at Darlington College, he is working towards Level 2 NVQ in Plastering and in the meantime spending time with our experienced craftsmen both on site and in the workshop where he will be mentored and taught the skills required for our business.
In his spare time Joe enjoys reading & boxing - he boxes 4 times a week. So far he describes the experience as 'Sound'. We are thrilled that we have found a young person to work in the 'heritage industry' who will in time become a highly skilled craftsmen using some of the same techniques that haven't changed in 100's of years.
