Success stories

I was looking at different career paths but was uncertain what I wanted to do. With an extremely relaxing environment, we completed all assessments as well as fabricating a few things for ourselves, which was interesting and fun.

Overall, I found the Building Heroes Engineering Course extremely enjoyable and would highly recommend it.

Performing Engineering Operations

I am absolutely over the moon. I’m ecstatic to land a job here [at Southern Rail]. It’s amazing, it really is. I love the variety of getting out, meeting the lads and taking pride in the stations, trying to maintain and keep them up to scratch. I’m totally grateful to everyone and to Building Heroes.

There was a lot I enjoyed about the Building Heroes course, it really was fantastic, well organised and the tutors were excellent.

Since the course, I applied for a job as a Trainee Assistant Site Manager with Barratt Developments and I was successful.
