Joel Taylor, Dacol Services UK Ltd

Joel Taylor was ready to take his A Levels with a view to going to university, before deciding this wasn’t for him. A rugby coach recommended a career in construction as Joel enjoyed working in a hands-on environment. He found a place with Dacol Services UK Ltd, who recommended an apprenticeship.

Skills Group have been ace. They offer support and have been efficient with paperwork, ensuring everything is up to date.

I am really interested in Painting & Decorating, but I didn’t think at such a late stage that I’d be able to get onto an apprenticeship. I’d certainly recommend Skills Group; they chucked me a bone and took me on, giving me the opportunity to earn and learn.

I want to move to London and build my own Painting & Decorating business. I’ve got a long way to go, but I know that with the skills I’ve gained from Skills Group, I can make it happen.
