Hear Davey's story

Having worked as a mechanic previously, 23 year-old Davey was looking to change his career. He had an interest in construction because his brother worked in the industry, but had never really acted upon it. He started to search for opportunities and was referred to The Building Block in Sheffield to receive some general construction training. Davey really enjoyed the teamwork aspect of the course and liked how friendly, professional and knowledgeable his trainers were.

Now he has successfully completed his training, we has worked in several different construction roles and has high hopes for the future in the industry.

Listen to Davey’s story in full and how the CSF training he received helped him find a rewarding new career path.
