Shining a light on Grant
Apprenticeships are a great way to kickstart your career. At Quattro, this week is an opportunity for us to celebrate our passionate and talented apprentices across our studio and encourage future students to take part in such a rewarding career path.
The theme for National Apprenticeship Week continues from 2021, with ‘Build the Future’ shining a spotlight on the benefits apprentices bring to individuals and employers.
This year, we are celebrating our driven degree apprentices who secured a funded undergraduate or postgraduate qualification through a combination of working and learning.
Meet Junior Architectural Assistant, Grant Morris, one of Quattro’s current degree apprentices whose ‘on the job’ learning is equipping him with the knowledge and future ready skills for a successful career in Architecture.
In Grant's own words...
“I joined Quattro’s Education and Commercial sector in 2018 to start a career in Architecture. Gaining hands on experience whilst studying for my Part 1 (BA Hons) at Birmingham City University was part of the appeal with a degree apprenticeship.
Since day one, I’ve been involved in a wide range of projects across all stages from feasibility through to working drawing packages for construction. I’ve gained technical skills as well as more creative skills in Adobe Suite. I’ve even been given the opportunity to gain exposure in our Visualisation Team helping to design and print 3D models – I’ve loved this and it lets me channel my creativity!
I’ve gained invaluable experience in Architecture at Quattro and I really notice how much it helps me understand and apply my university studies. It’s been a challenge at times, juggling work and study commitments but self-discipline is key, and my ambition drives me to succeed!
I’ve had great support along the way from my colleagues, who are always happy to help, sharing their knowledge and expertise. I would recommend ‘earning and learning’ as part of a fulfilling career path.
I’m looking forward to becoming an Architect and can’t wait to see where my career takes me. I’m proud of my achievements.”
Grant – it’s great to hear more about your passion and journey. We wish you all the best with your continued studies, your work at Quattro and your promising career as an Architect.
