Case Study

Meet Jonathan: A Scaffolding Apprentice with a Ballroom flair!

Jonathan celebrates completion of Scaffolder Apprenticeship with SIMIAN Apprentice Achiever Award.

Jonathan is not your typical scaffolder. At 41 years old, he has not only completed his scaffolder apprenticeship at SIMIAN but also boasts an incredible 20-year journey as a competitive ballroom dancer. His story is a testament to the diverse and fascinating backgrounds of individuals working in the construction industry.

Put forward by his company Palmers to gain his qualifications, Jonathan has achieved a broader understanding of Scaffolding and gained confidence in erecting and dismantling structures from start to finish, and wishes to achieve his full scaffolding cards to enable him to work on more specialised scaffold work.

When asked about his time with SIMIAN, Jonathan has said:

The main benefits I have gained form my time at SIMIAN is the confidence to lead by example on site with the knowledge I have gained through the true to life experience here at SIMIAN.

I would recommend SIMIAN to anybody looking to get into the scaffolding industry, with the excellent real-life tasks and great help from instructors who have a wealth of knowledge and experience.”
