FROM EMPLOYMENT ACADEMY ASSISTANT TO FULL TIME JOINER WITH CREATING ENTERPRISE
When Tom found himself facing redundancy as an Apprentice Joiner, he came to Creating Futures for employment support. When the Employment Academy role came up working with the Modular Solutions team, Tom jumped at the opportunity. With the support of the team he successfully applied and gained a 12 month contract working in our factory and development sites building Modular, energy efficient Passivhaus standard homes.
“I was so grateful for this opportunity to boost my skills in a completely new area. I had never ever considered I could be building timber frame homes for local people across North Wales I was glad that I could offer the skills I’d already gained, but also have the opportunity to continue to learn: working in the factory and on the sites. I have learnt so much in my year at the Academy, gaining valuable experience and training I have enjoyed coming to work everyday and being part of such a great team.
My mentor supported me throughout and gave me the confidence to apply for a permanent position when it came up with Creating Enterprise. I was successful with my application and now have a permanent position with an organisation where I can continue to learn and develop my skills alongside a supportive onsite team.”
Tom Woodward successfully came through the Academy and has now joined the Creating Enterprise team in a permanent position as a full time multi trade joiner and is currently working on the Glanrafon development site.
