George’s Apprenticeship Story

As we celebrate National Apprenticeship Week, we will be featuring stories of some of our wonderful apprentices.

George’s story:

“I joined Danny Sullivan Group two and a half years ago and have completed two apprenticeships. I now have three qualifications, NVQ 2 in groundworks, NVQ 2 in site team leadership and a NVQ 3 in occupational works supervision. In addition to gaining my qualifications I have done so much training, it has been brilliant. A combination of all this has helped propel me to where I am today and helped me move up the career ladder.

DSG has played such an important part in my career progression I will always be very grateful to them. I got to grown my skills whilst getting paid, met new people and gained lifelong skills and #skillsforlife.

My highlight has to be my recent completion of Trainee Foreman Apprenticeship. After a year of hard graft, getting to the finishing line has felt amazing. To get this qualification at such a young age just goes to show if you put your mind and hard work to something and with the right support anything is achievable.

I would 100% tell young people especially those who struggle with school like I did to do an apprenticeship with DSG. Classroom based learning wasn’t for me. Here I have been able to be very hands on and your part of a great friendly team who really take care of you and look out for you.

I have loved my time with DSG and also learned so much from many experienced people in the organisation.”
