Dale Turner who works for Kier North Tyneside – a joint venture between leading construction services group Kier and North Tyneside Council to provide construction, repair and maintenance services for the region’s council homes and public buildings. Dale has previously won JTL’s National MES Apprentice of the Year for 2018.
With A’ Levels in Maths, Physics, Chemistry and Psychology, Dale decided he wanted to become an apprentice but struggled to find a position. Eventually he applied for an administrative role in order to get a foot in the door at Kier. His strategy proved successful and as soon as an apprenticeship became available, he was snapped up. Outside work, Dale volunteers for national homeless charity, Crisis.
JTL Training Officer, Ian Ramsey, who assisted Dale throughout his apprenticeship, comments: “Dale is a determined and intelligent individual who was a model apprentice to mentor and is destined to succeed in life”.
