Another HGV Driver turns to the Construction Industry

This year has seen a lot of HGV Drivers take a new turn in life and join the Construction Industry. For many reason and mainly for a fresh start in life. As the skills shortage continues they have seen the opportunity to gain work in all trades.

Andrew saw this as an opportunity to finally go for the career he always saw for himself and put his HGV Driving behind him. Eight weeks ago, Andrew began his NVQ Level 2 Tiling course here at Able Skills and since then has never looked back.

Tiling is something that Andrew had always loved doing after helping a Plumber out with a few jobs here and there. His friend, who is a Plasterer, told him that he should go and start a tiling course to get the skills and qualifications he would need. With the skills shortage ongoing, his friend told him he would have no shortage of work.

HGV Driver Andrew has done extrmely well during his course as he looks to go from a HGV Driver to a Tiler.

After telling us he had always considered a trade, Andrew chose tiling because it is something he had tried before. Also, it was something that he knew he would get work from his Plastering friend. He is looking at any work now. Whether that is work for friends or others he is looking to start building his confidence and his work profile.

Andrew had looked at several training centres around the UK, however, he told us that Able Skills stood out to him more than any other centre. He praised the reviews and how easy it was to book online.

Once Andrew had started there was no looking back. He has really enjoyed his course and has had some huge praise for his instructor, Terry. He also told us that if he could do more training with us he would and that he could easily do another six weeks in our tiling centre. Andrew never believed how much he would learn in eight weeks and it really helped him gain the skills and confidence to go out and carry out his own jobs.

We would like to wish Andrew the best of luck for the future and we hope to see him back at Able Skills training very soon.
