Aaron Pepe is the Contracts Manager at Swale Scaffolding. He recently hosted a fabulous visit for four of our students where they learnt about apprenticeship opportunities with the company. After his GCSEs and A-levels, Aaron studied for a NVQ in Construction whilst working as a General Labourer at Swale Scaffolding. Qualifying as a Part 1 and Part 2 level scaffolder, he progressed to Assistant Contracts Manager. Promoted to Contracts Manager in 2014, Aaron works closely with the school offering apprenticeships to our students. A separate article about Aaron will be included in our next newsletter.
