Greg Pirie – Aberdeen Branch – studying BUFR Apprenticeship course at NCC Glasgow
“my apprenticeship is going well, I’m due to finish second year at the end of February 2023. I feel I’m picking up the trade at a reasonable pace”

Harvey Jones – Manchester Branch – studying Level 6 Quantity Surveying Apprenticeship course at Salford University
“I am an estimator/Quantity Surveyor Apprentice at Briggs Amasco and the apprenticeship is going very well so far. I am rapidly learning lots of new things about the construction industry and am looking forward to the future with Briggs Amasco”

Max Manuel – Leeds Branch – studying a Level 4 Site Supervisor Apprenticeship course at Leeds Construction College
“I am finding the apprenticeship very good as it is giving me more insight in the construction and roofing sector, in which BriggsAmasco Ltd gives me the vision and requirements for where I need to be in my successful career”

Karl Waddicor – Manchester Branch – studying a Level 2 Trailblazer Roofing Apprenticeship course with Simian Training Group
“I have now been Working for Briggs Amasco for 2 years, and I can honestly say it’s been the best choice I have ever made. My apprenticeship covers three different skills, involving Felt Membrane, Liquid coating, and Single Ply. I enjoy the felt side the most because I feel there is a lot to take in, and also looks adequately pleasing after the roof has been finished. Briggs Amasco has always given me a morale of support since I have started so in return, I continued to work hard for the company, which resulted in winning the apprentice of the year. This gave so much motivation in myself in which I continue to grow my skills and also the enjoyment of coming to work. My managers and supervisors continue to show support, and always give positive feedback in what I do on site as well as in college. After my apprenticeship ends, I will choose to make a successful career with Briggs Amasco”

Patrick Harvey – Leeds Branch – studying a Level 6 Quantity Surveying Apprenticeship course with Sheffield Hallam University
“I began my Quantity Surveying Degree Apprenticeship in September 2022 and have learnt about many aspects of the construction industry. Within law we have covered topics such as contract terms, dispute resolution, professional liability and contract termination. We have also studied a wide range of Building Technology topics such as foundations, roofing and cladding etc. I have found that my learning at Sheffield Hallam University has helped with my day-to-day work at Briggs Amasco. Overall I am enjoying my experience and would highly recommend the apprenticeship scheme to anyone interested”

Paul Mulgrew – Glasgow Branch – studying a Mastic Asphalting Apprenticeship course with New City College London
“I think the apprenticeship has been very good so far. There’s a lot to learn and to take in but it’s very enjoyable. Briggs have been amazing with the time that’s needed to do the course and if there’s anything required i get it”

Aidan Gillbanks – Hull Branch – studying a Level 6 Quantity Surveying Apprenticeship course with Leeds Beckett University
“I’m currently studying a Level 6 Quantity Surveying Degree Apprenticeship. Working alongside studying has allowed me to improve my industry knowledge whilst providing valuable experience that I would not have gained if I had gone to University full time. I have vastly improved my skills thanks to the support of my colleagues who are always available to help and who have made me feel like a valued member of the team. I have a further 2 years of my course to undertake and I know that the support is available in order to help make sure I am successful throughout the rest of my course and beyond”

Cameron Bruff – Glasgow Branch – studying a BUFR Apprenticeship course with National Construction College Inchinnan
“I find the college course very helpful towards the work I do with briggs. It’s good to mix with other apprentices and talk about what we are doing with our companies”

Jordan Short – Glasgow Branch – studying a BUFR Apprenticeship course with National Construction College Inchinnan
“I’m finding the apprenticeship great and the opportunities I have been given are brilliant. I appreciate everything the company has done for me and helped me achieve in my first year. I hope to thrive and continue to show the roofer i want be and hopefully give back to the company what they’ve given to me”
