Kevin’s journey so far
An innovative ‘real life’ construction experience with a focus on those who live and work in Southwark.
What did you do when you finished school?
I did work experience at the Southwark Construction Skills Centre which was organised through the school. I really enjoyed it.
Then John White (SCSC Operation Director) asked me if I wanted to do a follow-up employment programme through the Construction Skills Fund in October 2018. It was a whole new world I just didn’t know about
This training is having a positive impact on my life as I can now contribute to the family Kevin Benn
What training did you do at the Centre
‘I successfully completed my highways programme at the SCSC. It was a three-week course and covered.
The course covered:
Health, Safety And welfare in the workplace
Establishing Work Area Protection and safety in the workplace
Excavating holes and Trenches-manual Digging in the workplace
Reinstating Excavating and Highway Surfaces in the workplace
What job are they doing now, or do they plan to do in the future.
I am currently an Apprentice at the SCSC. I am hoping to complete my Highways Maintenance apprenticeship and climb the ladder and progress my career.
