Have you thought about a career in Construction? Rebecca hadn’t

Have you thought about a career in Construction? Rebecca hadn’t

After leaving school Rebecca began a Hair and Beauty course but soon realised that it wasn’t the right career path for her.  Instead she decided to follow in her father’s footsteps into the construction industry.  Rebecca secured a place on our apprenticeship programme and enrolled at Hopwood Hall College.
 

“My apprenticeship at Novus has been a great learning curve and has given me the skills to become a professional Painter and Decorator.

 “The tutors at Hopwood Hall College were excellent.  They were an important part of me learning the trade and becoming a more confident person.

 “It’s the same at Novus, too. I’ve had a lot of support and I feel like a member of the team – not just the apprentice.  I haven’t stopped learning since I started here and I enjoy my job a lot!

 “I always felt I had to pursue a career in hair and beauty or childcare because I’m a girl, like many others do. But I’ve learnt you don’t have to follow these social stigmas - you can do whatever you want to do.”
