Today we’re chatting to one of the people doing a modern apprenticeship here at Beith Trust. Cameron McIntosh is one of those people.
How did you get started?
After finishing my college course I was told that Beith had opportunities for modern apprenticeships and I jumped at that chance. After an interview with Jane Lamont I was straight into learning and working. It all happened so fast, I wasn’t expecting it to happen like that but it did and I’m loving it.
What have you been up to since then? Skills etc
I’ve learnt so much over the days and weeks, it’s been great. Everything from working as a part of a team to being on my own. I’ve been learning about horticulture, gardening, maintaining a section of land and we’ve also been doing a bit of construction as well. I’ve also been taking a cooking class as well, learning to cook different meals.
What does the future hold?
Hopefully new job opportunities, a chance on progressing even further once the apprenticeship is over. I hope to gain new experiences once it’s completed. We’ll see what happens.
Working at Beith Trust?
It’s fantastic. The people here have been so helpful. They’ve kept me on the right path, just knowing that the support is there makes all the difference. The staff treat you as one of their own, it’s a great place to come and learn.
I’m looking forward to seeing what happens.
