New call-to-action

Congratulations to Harry Brammer for achieving a Distinction in his Level 2 Maintenance Operations Apprenticeship (which is now known as Property Maintenance Level 2).

Harry, 23, from Newcastle–Under–Lyme, started his Journey with Achieve Training (formally PM Training) when he was 16, as a learner supporting the Homeworks property services team. He then secured full-time employment at Staffordshire University as a Maintenance Engineer Assistant. Harry has just completed a Maintenance Operations Apprenticeship; he has excelled in his skills and achieved a distinction. Harry is now looking to develop his career further at Staffordshire University as a Maintenance Engineer leading into management within the maintenance or construction sector.

Harry's journey with Achieve Training

Since leaving school, Harry was interested in either becoming an electrician, plumber, or joiner as he has always enjoyed tinkering with machinery and building objects. He stated that he has always had an interest in management within Construction. By choosing a Maintenance Operation Apprenticeship, you get to experience the different trades rather than focusing on just one specific area.

Harry states: “This apprenticeship has allowed me to gain skills in a broad spectrum and get an understanding of all the trades and I've got the option to branch into the other main aspects of construction and maintenance.”

Harry got all the support he needed during the apprenticeship from his tutor Brian Pepper. Harry continues: “My tutor was outstanding, he gave me all the support needed, and if he didn’t feel confident, he wouldn’t let us move on until we all were at the same level. I thought this was brilliant, so the other learners didn’t feel pressured or rushing and then missing valuable skills”.

“Harry has been a pleasure to teach, and I will miss him and his enthusiasm, he is truly an amazing young man."    - Brian Pepper, Tutor at Achieve Training.

Shining Star

Harry has a bright future ahead of himself and has a full understanding and great knowledge of the different trades. Harry explained, “The main challenge of the apprenticeship was the principles of building as this is a lot of specification and requires plenty of attention to detail but with the support from my Tutor, Brian, this becomes something you don’t think about eventually and becomes second nature.”

Harry praises Achieve Training and would recommend young learners who are struggling with their career path to join as in Harry’s Words “Achieve push you in the right direction and the support you get with them is incredible and everyone is always so helpful with any situation you may have.”
