Working hands-on has given me a great deal of knowledge and experience to be able to carry out and understand my studies far better. My colleagues on site have given me lots of support ranging from demonstrations, task supervision and personal development challenges in addition to answering my many questions!

I enjoy the friendly and approachable environment at Baxall. Everyone is professional but personable too and there’s a real presence of teamwork.

I really enjoy carpentry and understanding the different elements of how a building comes together. I find it very rewarding when we complete and hand over a building to a happy Client; it reminds me of all the time and hard work we have all put in.
