Jason Taylor, National Certificate in Construction Trades (Main Contract Supervisor) Level 5 Graduate

A chance to upskill brought with it an added bonus for builder Jason Taylor. The owner and operator of JT’s Building Services is on the cusp of graduating with the supervisor level five course, and while he was there to gain qualifications, one of the best parts of the two year course was the networking between students.  Taylor, who has been in the industry for around 12 years, is already looking to do the level six diploma.
