Apprentice of the Month: March 2019

 

 

 

Our March Apprentice of the Month is Callum Cocks. Callum is a Level 2 NVQ Stonemason working for Well’s Cathedral and has been nominated by his tutor Ash.

 

The Stonemasonry Apprenticeship provides a practical hands on experience of stonemasonry. You’ll learn to prepare for the job as well as produce architectural stone work. An apprenticeship offers you a broad opportunity to gain the knowledge and skills to become a qualified Stonemason, through instruction in the classroom and practical work experience on the job.

 

Callum’s tutor Ash told us:

“Callum is a model student and works to a very high standard as a stonemason and sometimes even matches the level 3 learners for skill.  He is methodical and is always challenging himself to become better, both at college and at work. Callum works very well within the classroom and is a popular figure, he is likely to finish his apprenticeship early and also complete his Diploma well within the deadlines given. He is also supporting other colleagues in the same class where required and helping with knowledge and tips on gathering evidence for the apprenticeship.  Callum has helped on open days for the college and promoting stonemasonry for department, he is engaging and passionate about his job and loves working with stone.”

 

Callum is well deserving of this month’s title of Apprentice of the Month, good luck with the rest of your studies Callum!
