Meet the Apprentice
David McComb is a Level 4 Construction Site Engineering Technician with construction company, Amey.
Read on to find out more about his role and his apprenticeship journey so far.
Why did you decide to undertake an apprenticeship?
I decided to do an apprenticeship so that I could learn skills both inside of college and outside in a job role in the industry I had chosen. Also being paid to learn and work is also a bonus.
How long have you been at the company?
I have worked at Amey for over 3 years now and started as an apprentice at 21 years old on a Level 3 course. Since finishing my Level 3 BTEC I have gone on to start a level 4 HNC in Civil Engineering at the college.
Could you tell us a bit about your role?
I am currently working permanently on site between two large schemes in the city centre of Liverpool to change the Strand outside the Liver building and outside of St Georges hall/ Lime Street Station. My role on site is to keep a site diary and check on the general progress of the schemes, problem solving for example finding unexpected underground services and on site drawing changes on AutoCAD.
What has the support been like from The City of Liverpool College during your apprenticeship?
The support from the college has been great I have had regular visits and contact from my NVQ assessor and the teachers have always been helpful.
What are your plans for the future?
My plans for the future are to finish my HNC and hopefully continue to university to get a degree, after this I will then be going on to get recognised as a chartered engineer and hopefully become a project manager at Amey.
