Career as quantity surveyor inspires apprentice Maddie

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.

There aren’t that many women in construction but a lot of work is underway to get more trainees in. I think it’s changing gradually – I hope so, I think women have a natural eye for detail.
