BLOG: How Liam’s games design course developed his career in construction

Posted on February 6, 2024 in Blog

We understand that the traditional academic route to a construction career is not for everyone so we support alternative learning approaches through apprenticeship.

Liam Straw started a college course studying game design and it wasn’t until Digital Engineering Manager, Morgan Hambling gave a talk at the college Liam thought about a career in construction. Joining the industry has come with challenges such as understanding the language used but through talking to people at work his knowledge is expanding.

Watch his vlog to see the advice he would give to anybody thinking about starting an apprenticeship and how it has helped him build his skillset as well as learn from the people surrounding him.
