Staff and apprentice round up, May 2011.

Jake (pictured top left) is undergoing work experience with Woodfellas to gain skills in carpentry and joinery.
We hope to offer Jake a full time, three year indentured apprenticeship working with in conjunction the CITB in September 2011. This will enable his progression through the construction industry on a guided pathway.

Nicholas (pictured right) is working full time at Woodfellas on main structural building works with Richard Slammon, our H&S and Development Officer. The experience Nick is gaining with listed buildings and restoration will hold him in good stead for the future. Nick is due to be offered a full time apprenticeship in September 2011.

We are very proud to have such high calibre young personnel on-board. It takes time, patience and dedication to qualify for an apprenticeship, not only for the employee but also the employer. Woodfellas skills and craftsmanship is forged from apprentice based training and we are always mindful of the opportunities this offers within our industry.

Keep up the good work lads!

Master Carpenter and Joiner IOC award plus a Licentiateship from the City and Guilds of London

What a great couple of months for awards! Two in such a short space of time, although it took 25 years to get here. Now, my main objective is to try and keep the traditional aspect of the trade and teach the new generation so we don't lose the skills, knowledge and finish we once took for granted.

I received my Master Carpenter and Joiner award from the Institute of Carpenters on 1 June 2010 at Carpenters' Hall, London. The award was presented by Sheriff of the City of London, Peter Cook.

Then a few a weeks before, I received my award of Licentiatship presented the by City and Guilds of London on 8 May 2010 in the Merchants Taylor Hall, Threadneedle Street, London. The award was for Building Construction over the last 25 years.

I brought my father and sister with me which was a very proud moment for myself and family. What made the presentation even more special was that I was the 100th awardee of this prized accolade.

James, Managing Director.
