School holidays helping her dad’s business helped fire teenager Maddie Kirkman’s dream of a career in construction.
Maddie, completed the Level 3 BTEC in Professional Construction and the Built Environment at Derby College, whilst working as an apprentice at G F Tominson.
She is now studying the Foundation Degree in Construction Management at Derby College and has celenrated her third year at G F Tomlinson. She first got interested in building when she helped her dad – on site and in the office – at his mechanical and electrical company.
Maddie plans to use her BTEC and Foundation Degree as a stepping stone towards a full degree in quantity surveying.
