In 2017 Aqua Construction took on Myles Wasley, a Civil Engineering apprentice, helping him to develop his skills in his chosen trade whilst studying a 2-year course at Gloucestershire College. Much to the delight of Myles and the entire Aqua team, in summer 2019 Myles completed his course, achieving a Level 2 NVQ Diploma in Construction Operations and Civil Engineering Services.
Aqua recognises the importance of developing the next generation of construction workers enabling them to gain invaluable knowledge and experience within the industry. Every year we review our training requirements and look to improve the skills of our workforce through ongoing and new training programs, as well as taking on new apprentices.
Since completing his studies, we have looked to further Myles’ skills by placing him on further training programs. In the last few months, Myles has achieved further qualifications enabling him to drive a Forward Tipping Dumper and Excavator 360 upto 10 tonnes. As well as this he has completed his Cat and Genny training qualifying him in cable avoidance detection. All of this training will help Myles advance his career aspirations, giving him more responsibility on-site and broadening his skillset.
Danny Redmond, Head of Groundwork Operations, commented “Aqua is committed to helping and providing the next generation with all the necessary skills to progress and achieve their goals within the industry. Myles has shown dedication and a natural ability towards all tasks put before him, through which he has thrived during all aspects of training and has become a valuable team member.”
Myles Wasley commented, “I am so grateful to have completed my apprenticeship with Aqua. They were extremely supportive throughout the 2 years and since achieving my qualification have helped me to improve my skills even more, by giving me the chance to take part in further training.”
