Constructing Carmarthenshire Reports on Bryngwyn Pupil Thornton Boswell Who Won the 2 Year Apprenticeship with Lloyd & Gravell

Next Steps 2012 winner Thornton Boswell

A TEENAGER fresh out of school has landed his dream job in the construction industry after winning Next Steps 2012 – a unique competition to find a new building apprentice for Carmarthenshire.

Thornton Boswell, of Felinfoel, Llanelli, has only just picked up his GCSE results from Bryngwyn School, but this week he started work for Llanelli and Gwendraeth-based building firm Lloyd & Gravell Ltd.

Thornton was one of six candidates who have taken part in the competition throughout the summer in a bid to win a fast-track to their chosen career.

And whilst competing against each other for the coveted job, they worked together as a team to complete a project that would benefit the community and leave a lasting legacy.

The 16-year-old said he was ‘over the moon’ to have won the competition, and started his first day of his carpentry apprenticeship on Monday.

“I really didn’t expect to win – I’m really happy,” he said. “Chances like this don’t come around often for young boys like me.”

The winner was announced at a ceremony held on Friday, August 31, at Parc Y Scarlets.
