Like most people in the country, I thoroughly enjoyed the Olympics; not least because I was involved in them - in a very small way. Watching "the youth of the world" compete for the medals and for the glory and honour of their countries got me thinking about our apprentice and how we are handing over the baton of knowledge to her and those of the next generation.
Apprenticeships have always been and continues to be an essential part of the construction industry. It sounds simple, mainly because it is, but passing on skills and knowledge in a work environment backed up by part-time academic learning is, by far, the best way of teaching and learning in our industry.
