With National Apprenticeship Week well underway, where the industry recognises the dedication and commitment of our apprentices, Trainee Site Manager at Acton Gardens and Ealing Apprentice of the Year 2016, Supanja Davies explains her apprenticeship experience with Countryside so far.

A DAY IN THE LIFE OF A TRAINEE SITE MANAGER APPRENTICE - BY SUPANJA DAVIES

My early interest in a career in construction came from growing up in Thailand where my family run their own brick factory business I’m now studying a HNC Diploma in Construction since moving to the UK 10 years ago to further my education and career in the industry.

My week involves working four days a week on site at Acton Gardens, and travelling to Neath and Port Talbot College in South Wales every Thursday to study. My current course includes modules such as; Civil Engineering, Construction and Maintenance of Buildings, Design Principles and Health, Safety and welfare for construction and the Built Environment.

I am gaining experience on site as a Trainee Site Manager at Acton Gardens, which is a beautiful project. Typical daily activities include submitting a subcontractor supervisor’s daily checklist to my Project Manager, meeting with subcontractors and most importantly ensuring we meet our high health and safety standard at all times. At present I am the only women working on site which can be challenging, but I am very ambitious and feel extremely lucky to be working on such an amazing project.

Countryside is a great company to work for as they provide support and all the necessary site experience I need to pass my course. I have been working at the company for the past six months and am currently in the third year of my course, which altogether will take five years to complete. I look forward to continuing my apprenticeship with Countryside to help my studies and gain excellent practical experience.”
