We are proud to announce that two ASW apprentices, Dalton Brown and Ryan Murphy, have been announced as finalists in the Swansea Bay Construction Support Group’s annual awards.
The ceremony, designed to support and recognise the achievements of new entrants, apprentices and future talent within the construction industry in the South Wales region, will take place on July 7 at the Village Hotel, Swansea.
Swansea Bay Construction Support Group’s overall objective is to promote the construction industry’s image and showcase the benefits of considering the construction industry as a career path, and what skills individuals can gain from this profession.
It works closely with Cyfle Building Skills, an organisation that manages a shared apprenticeship scheme in Southwest Wales for the construction industry. Some 90% of apprentices who complete the three years with Cyfle Building Skills secure full-time employment in their chosen trade.
The evening will see awards presented to nominated apprentices from member companies of the Swansea Bay Construction Support Group, including: ASW Property Services; John Weaver; Hale Construction; Craftsman Flooring; CJ Construction; Green Hat Consulting; and Andrew Scott.
Anthony Thomas, Managing Director of ASW and chairman of the Swansea Bay Construction Support Group, said:
“The Swansea Bay Construction Support Group Awards is a fantastic initiative and I am very proud that the hard work and dedication of Dalton and Ryan has been recognised in this way. We must celebrate these successes and support their journey. Our apprentices are just as responsible as our fully trained staff members for keeping the homes and buildings of our customers safe, and we are thankful to them for choosing the construction industry as a career path.”
Dalton Brown said:
“I am very proud ASW trusts me to run these projects. I’ve gained huge experience doing my apprenticeship and in the future, I want to become a fully qualified QS working with senior management for ASW property services.”
Ryan Murphy said:
“I’m looking forward to completing my apprenticeship with ASW, staying here when I’m qualified and learning new skills. The reason I wanted to be a carpenter was because my father was a carpenter, and I want to follow in his footsteps. In the future, I’d love to run my own company.”
