Fraser Gunn, a fourth year joinery apprentice with housing developer Lovell, is one of the county’s Modern Apprentices supporting the campaign.

West Lothian’s Fraser Gunn is one of the county’s Modern Apprentices who have been supporting this month’s Scottish Apprenticeship campaign.

Fraser (20) is a fourth year joinery apprentice with housing developer Lovell and is currently based at the company’s construction site in Whitburn.

Fraser said being a joiner has been his dream job since he was a child.

He was delighted to be recruited by Lovell.

Fraser explained that he was happy with an apprenticeship as it enabled him to earn money while he was developing his skills.

He said: “The thought of an apprenticeship attracted me because it gives you the training to get a trade, you get to go to college, plus you get paid while you learn.”

The former Linlithgow Academy pupil said he particularly enjoys the variety of his job and the different challenges each day can bring.

Other aspects of the work that Fraser enjoys are meeting different people and the woodwork he does at West Lothian College.

Fraser faces some challenges in the workplace, as he is profoundly deaf but has been well supported in his training by his employers and the college.
