Property Maintenance Apprentice
Jake - Property Maintenance Apprentice
How did you get into it?
After leaving school, I did a carpentry course although it wasn't fulfilling enough.
Someone suggested an apprenticeship as an opportunity to learn more than one trade and gain on-the-job training.
What does the role include?
The role includes carpentry, plumbing, decorating and cleaning along with a focus on health and safety and compliance.
All schools are different and each has its own challenges and environment, which provides a lot of variety in the day-to-day work.
What do you enjoy about the role?
The variety of work, meeting the different people in schools and knowing that my role makes a difference to children’s education, as it is my job to make sure the school is safe, secure and maintained to a high standard – providing a positive environment for them to learn.
