Big congratulations to Devonate and Jack who started their apprenticeship in October. Their apprenticeship will last for 3 years and at the end they will be fully qualified plumbers.

Here is a short quote from Devonate

“I received a letter regarding apprenticeships for construction. This was just what I was looking for.

I called a man called Andre Peters to discuss my interest in plumbing, who helped me through my Health and Safety revision for my CSCS card. Andre also helped me prepare for  interview for my plumbing apprenticeship.


I have now been accepted as an apprentice for P&R attending college once a week and working 4 times a week. I have also received help with my lunch meals an my travel expenses which I have Andre Peters to thanks. “
