Apprentice Builds Winning Reputation

Lovell bricklaying apprentice Scott Franklin has bagged a trophy for his brickwork skills.

The 21-year-old trainee is working on the major regeneration programme which the company is carrying out for Somer Community Housing Trust in Bath and Keynsham.

He was picked from 30 students on his NVQ Level 2 course at Wiltshire College, Trowbridge, to be awarded the Brickwork Trophy.

Tim Gilbert, Wiltshire College Programme Leader for brickwork, said: "Scott has an appetite for knowledge and always wants to improve his skills in every task, both in his theory work and practical sessions. Throughout the course, he has constantly produced an excellent standard of work in all areas of brickwork."

"From the start, Scott impressed us all with his attitude and hard work so its great to see him get this outside recognition," said Lovell Regional Training Manager Mike Davis. "This award is thoroughly deserved and were all delighted for him. Creating opportunities for people like Scott to gain qualifications and build their career is a key part of our approach to regeneration."

Scott says: "Before getting my apprenticeship with Lovell, Id worked as a labourer on building sites but I really wanted to learn a trade. Having the chance to gain qualifications and get a wide variety of experience on site has been brilliant. I really enjoy what I do its creative and really rewarding to look back at what youve built."

After finishing his NVQ Level 2 qualification in 2011, he hopes to study for the Level 3 award.
