Alex's journey into construction - an apprenticeship story

Alex wasn’t sure what he wanted to do when he finished school. That all changed when he and his friends joined their local grammar school, giving Alex the opportunity to enrol on the Level 3 Applied Diploma in Professional Construction Practice (PCP). Construction wasn’t a career Alex had considered before, but it was one he took advantage of after seeing the curriculum.
Developed by ISG and awarding organisation, WJEC, the PCP is a first-of-its-kind construction qualification equivalent in value to an A-level. The course offers young people the chance to become familiar with construction, introducing the skills, technologies and ethos needed for a career in the industry.

Alex charts his success on the course to the variety it brings and the chance to meet construction professionals – ISG attended classes every month, giving him the opportunity to tap into the expertise of its people. 

"The course gave me great insight into construction and bridged the gap between class and practice, which helped start my career,” he says. “The well-structured content and collaboration with ISG made progressing from class to site easier than I expected."

The course is clearly reaping rewards – Alex hasn’t looked back since his foray in construction, and now works on site as an Apprentice Quantity Surveyor.
