Ryan has completed a BTEC Level 3 qualification in Construction after school. Alongside his job at Robertson, he spends one day per week at Salford University doing a degree in Quantity Surveying.

Ryan stressed the benefit of construction apprenticeships, and how this route to a career was better suited to him than pursuing A-levels and a full-time university degree.
