Case Study: Lucy 

Lucy registered with SECTA when her career at that time was a Childs Party Host but Lucy was determined to secure a role in construction, looking for any opportunity to help her take the first steps to get into the industry.

Lucy completed her Level 1 Health and Safety Awareness and Labourers CSCS Card and passed with flying colours.  Lucy received 1:1 mentoring and support from SECTA. Through the support that she received, Lucy built up her confidence and skills to start looking for her ideal role within construction. Lucy found her dream role as a Trainee Asbestos Consultant for Environtec Ltd, and had an interview booked! She received mock interviews and felt confidant and prepared for her interview the next day.      

Within 3 weeks of joining the programme, Lucy secured a job! She had successfully impressed the employers at her interview and secured the role as a Trainee Asbestos Consultant.

She has now completed her training, has thrived in her role and is now a qualified Asbestos Consultant!
