Meet Glen Taylor, Lecturer in Construction at GC

Glen Taylor, GC’s Lecturer in Construction started his personal apprenticeship journey straight out of school and worked as a bricklayer for over 20 years, specialising in site and general brickwork and eventually setting up his own company.

We're gearing up for the September 2022 starts of our construction and building services apprenticeship programmes at GC. This month, we're catching up with our construction and building services trainers, to see what inspired them to learn a trade and why they enjoy teaching apprentices.

Glen Taylor, GC’s Lecturer in Construction started his personal apprenticeship journey straight out of school and worked as a bricklayer for over 20 years, specialising in site and general brickwork and eventually setting up his own company.

During his bricklaying career, Glen went into part-time teaching, doing assessments for apprentices. He enjoyed teaching part-time, and employed a number of apprentices himself. Having worked as an Assessor and an Apprenticeship Manager at GC,  Glen now teaches our Bricklayer Apprenticeship Level 2.          .

“I naturally enjoy working with people who are new to the industry and bringing their skills and behaviours up so they can have a successful career. Learning a trade gives people a focus and a pathway to do well in life. I used to be an apprentice myself, and I know first-hand how beneficial it can be. Apprentices I trained 10 years ago are now employing their own apprentices and it’s the best way for passing knowledge on, growing local talent, and for the industry to stay current.”

At GC we offer the following construction and building services apprenticeships:
