A Colchester firm's apprentices are celebrating attaining their qualifications during National Apprenticeship Week.

Ingleton Wood, a property and construction consultancy, has praised the efforts of its expanding team of apprentices for achieving practical qualifications.

The company has recently grown its apprentice team to nearly 20.

Ingleton Wood offers various apprenticeships levels, including Levels 6 and 7 degree apprenticeships, accessible to individuals of all backgrounds as an alternative pathway into the construction industry.

Four new apprentices joined the company in 2023: Mr Ben Harris, Mr Joshua Brown, Mr Ryan Dennis and Mr Henry Bell.

Simultaneously, three existing apprentices, Priyanka Shah, Brandon Cook and Callum McGinn, celebrated completing their apprenticeships.

Callum McGinn, building services design engineer, said: "After seven and a half years of part-time study, I’m proud to have successfully completed my apprenticeship, and have now received my full Bachelor of Engineering degree.

"Working in the building services sector while studying an apprenticeship allows you to get a great understanding of the working environment and has helped to building my confidence in managing my own projects and workloads.

"Ingleton Wood has been very helpful and supportive through my apprenticeship by offering sufficient time off for studies and exams and providing supportive mentors throughout my time at London South Bank University."

This year, seven budding apprentices at the multidisciplinary company are set to undertake their End Point Assessments.

Ingleton Wood is now reviewing apprenticeship vacancies for September 2024.
