Nicole Begins Apprenticeship at our Weston-super-Mare Centre

Following in her father's footsteps, Nicole embarks on an exciting journey into the world of scaffolding, starting her apprenticeship at SIMIAN Weston-super-Mare.

Growing up with a father who was a seasoned scaffolder since the age of 17, Nicole was exposed to the scaffolding world from a young age and was able to witness her father work his way up within the industry. She found inspiration in her father’s dedication and skill, and her interest in scaffolding grew organically and was encouraged to follow in his footsteps.

With the support of her father and his encouraging words about the scaffolding industry, it was on his recommendation that led her to SIMIAN to start her apprenticeship in Tube and Fitting.

When asked about her time so far with SIMIAN, Nicole said:

“I am really enjoying myself and just taking in what knowledge and information I have being taught since being on the apprenticeship. The reason I wanted to go into scaffolding, even though it is predominantly a male orientated profession, is to prove that women can do scaffolding as well as other jobs usually performed by males.

When I started this journey I did lack confidence but since I started my apprenticeship I feel a lot more confident and have surprised myself. The boys I work with on site have been a great support and I feel I am receiving the same support at SIMIAN.

I look forward to the future and what it might bring.

We wish Nicole the best of luck with her apprenticeship and cannot wait to see her progress throughout this journey.
