Jared Gilmore Trainee Assistant Site Manager at Countryside Properties

"The College has prepared me for the future by allowing me to carry out work experience every week which has taught me a lot."

Jared said: “I chose to study at Blackburn College because I feel it offered the best opportunities for me personally and is highly regarded in the community. What I have enjoyed the most is increasing my knowledge in Construction and meeting lots of new people and friends.

“The College has prepared me for the future by allowing me to carry out work experience every week which has taught me a lot. My tutors have supported me to achieve my goals by always supplying me with information and knowledge on different subjects.

“I am currently working for Countryside Properties as a Trainee Assistant Site Manager. Alongside this, I am completing a Level 4 NVQ in Construction Site Supervision.

“After completing my Level 4 NVQ, I will be a qualified Assistant Site Manager and will be able to progress on to the higher level NVQ courses.

“This is what I have wanted to do and I am really enjoying it. Topics that I learnt at College such as Project Management are helping me in my new role and I am taking on responsibilities such as dealing with customers, and observing and supervising with work carried out on site.”
