Matthew Lloyd Jones

Matthew Lloyd Jones is looking ahead to an apprenticeship with a local building contractor, something that didn’t seem possible a few years ago. Matty has ADHD and struggled throughout school and his life spiraling out of control.

The Traineeship Construction Academy course through Coleg Cambria saw Matty, from Buckley, undertake construction workshops, community-based projects and work placements. A Site Safety Plus Level 1 and green labourers CSCS Card allowed him to complete a construction site work placement and a local building contractor has offered him an apprenticeship.

Matty said:

“Joining the Traineeship programme has helped me get my life back on track. I have proved to myself, my family and trainers that I was able to turn my life around.”
