John Hulley, Carpentry and Joinery Modern Apprentice

John Hulley works with RMConstruction and is doing a Modern Apprenticeship in Carpentry and Joinery. He spends the majority of his time with his employer, attending Inverness College UHI on block release for study. 

“One of my favourite things is getting exposed to a wide variety of experiences – no two days are the same. I was looking for a career change when I started this apprenticeship and it has really boosted my confidence. Learning new skills and having the opportunity to use those skills in different settings is a great feeling. My assessor is always just a text or a phone call away and has been a great support.”
