Luca Winkler, aged 22, currently based at Bloxham Vale, on Bloxham Road, has been shortlisted as Redrow Homes South Midlands’ Apprentice of the Year. The commendation was awarded thanks to Luca’s commitment to become an expert in his field, as well as his positive, ‘can-do’ attitude.
Luca joined Redrow Homes South Midlands as an apprentice bricklayer and has always been working at Bloxham Vale. Prior to his apprenticeship, he completed various labourer jobs and studied bricklaying in college.
His previous experiences taught him the basics of construction work, and gave him an overview of the housebuilding industry, before he decided to specialise in bricklaying. According to Luca, being hardworking is key to succeed as an apprentice.
Luca said: “I am so pleased to have been selected as the region’s best apprentice, and I’m delighted that my hard work has been recognised. I love working outdoors, and I’d heard nothing but good things about Redrow before I joined, so Bloxham Vale was the best place to kickstart my career in the housebuilding industry.
“I look forward to continuing to gain valuable experience and learn new skills here at Redrow Homes. I’d recommend anyone thinking of doing an apprenticeship to go for it, as it’s a great way of learning new skills while building a career.”
John Mann, managing director for Redrow Homes South Midlands, added: “From the moment he started his apprenticeship, Luca’s curiosity and positivity truly stood out, and I know everyone at Bloxham Vale is thrilled to have him in the team. Success stories like his are the reason why we are committed to nurture apprentices here at Redrow Homes, and we look forward to watching him grow in his career. Well done Luca!”
