Robert Ledger, Bricklaying Apprentice

5th February 2024

Robert shares with us his journey from working in landscaping to completing a Level 2 in bricklaying.

Site location: Valley Park, Yapton, West Sussex

What were you doing before becoming a Redrow apprentice?

I was landscaping with gypsies.

What made you want to become a Redrow apprentice?

I’d finished school and had done a Level 2 [bricklaying] at college and wanted to pursue it, so decided to sign-up for this. The apprenticeship is different from the Level 2 as it’s more practical, learning on site with other brickies and learning new skills and trades. Plus, I’m learning while getting paid. I’ve now been here a year and a bit.

What have been the highlights during the apprenticeship?

Anything you’re really proud of? It’s nice being here and I’ve made friends. It’s good to practice what you want to do. I have a good site team. I’ve built a few houses, and they look good, and it feels great, proud even, seeing people move into the houses I’ve helped build.

What are you hoping for at the end of your apprenticeship?

Either go onto the management course here at Redrow or leave and start as a self-employed brickie and earn some nice money.

What advice would you give someone in your shoes thinking about an apprenticeship?

Do it. Just go for it. It’s a long time to be here but it’s good.

What is it about Redrow houses that’s different to other stuff you’ve done?

It’s a lot more fiddley – there’s a lot to more to a Redrow house than just a standard box and garage. It’s more challenging.

How do you find your site in terms of diversity?

It’s a very small site, only 45 houses, so not many people at all.

What other things are great about Redrow?

Redrow offers tickets to do courses such as forklift which is great to build my skillset.
