RoC Consulting’s apprentice Jack Ford has been featured as a success story in the latest issue of Salford City College’s Achieve magazine! Jack, who is our first civil and structural engineering apprentice, spoke to the magazine as part of National Apprenticeship Week, which is being celebrated across the UK from 5 to 11 February.

RoC Consulting joined forces with Salford City College in 2023 to address the growing demand for skilled professionals in the civil engineering field and to help forge a path for future engineers. The partnership aims to not only bridge the gap between education and industry, but also to empower ambitious individuals like Jack to embark on a rewarding career path within the sector.

Discussing his journey with RoC, Jack said: “My apprenticeship so far has been very interesting. I have been able to see all the planning that goes into some of the biggest projects, and I would say that there is a lot more planning than I realised. I have developed my skills over the last four months including maths and terminology regarding the subject I’m studying.

“The benefit of being on an apprenticeship is getting to work with professionals in their field and being paid to learn and work your way up in the ranks of the company.”
