Meet the Apprentices...Juran Ukereghe
Role: Construction & the Built Environment ApprenticeTeam: LondonJoined: Crofton ConsultingWhy did you decide on an apprenticeship?
Before I started my A Levels, I was sceptical about taking the traditional route to higher education as I was hearing from friends and family about how limited job opportunities are once you leave. The working whilst learning concept has always appealed to me as it provides employment stability whilst also challenging to me to aim higher and do better.
I was in the first year of my A Levels in Product Design, Geography, Maths & Physics before deciding it was not for me and begun applying for apprenticeships.
What do you see as the biggest challenges in your job?
Delivering the best design and value for the client whilst meeting respective time and budget constraints.
What do you do at work?
A typical day for me would be doing electrical design using software such as AutoCAD, Revit, Dialux and Amtech. Recently I’ve been involved in thermal modelling for energy assessments using IES. I also often attend design workshops, design team meetings and regularly face clients.
I enjoy seeing the progress from initial thoughts and ideas through to project completion. I also relish in finding solutions to engineering problems and technical challenges.
What are the benefits?
A big point is that you’re earning money and gaining experience at the same time, this is alongside having no student debt as your tuition fees are sponsored by your employer. In my case once I complete university, I will have 7 years’ experience in consultancy which will be unrivalled compared with my traditional peers. It also helps you adapt to the working environment from school in a gradual way, there is less pressure for you to perform out of the box like you would have if you had just completed university. Throughout your apprenticeship you grow up and mature a lot faster than you would traditionally.
My next challenge is to complete my degree and then move on to acquiring further professional qualifications with CIBSE and IET. I plan to carry on gaining experience by working on various types of projects for different sectors to round my engineering knowledge. A goal of mine is to move up to a higher role and manage a team of engineers.
