Case Study – Carl Kendall  

Carl Studied: General Construction Operations Apprenticeship Level 1 & 2

Where is he now? Barnfield Construction


Carl first started working at Barnfield Construction as a labourer but always expressed an interest in learning about ground work.

After being urged to take up an apprenticeship he enrolled onto a General Construction Operations (GCO) Intermediate Apprenticeship. This allowed him to ‘earn and learn’ at the same time. Of his time on the course Carl said:

“I have progressed so much in such a short time and my aim is to now progress onto the Advanced qualification. I started off helping the ground workers as it was something I wanted to get into. Then I managed to gain an apprenticeship and now I get to do something I love.”
