Nurture Landscapes who maintain all landscaping at Winnersh Triangle and a number of other Frasers Property Business Parks, is delighted to welcome 18-year-old Daniel Skeates to the team as an intern. Daniel who is autistic, wants to further his knowledge and passion of working outdoors and will join the team at the end of July. Currently he is working with the maintenance team at Addington School in Woodley.
Nurture is enabling young people like Daniel with special educational needs (SEN) to develop essential skills and build their confidence in preparation for further opportunities in their employment.
Daniel has already undertaken his induction with Nurture and his role will include working alongside the team and joining in with the weekly schedule of works ranging from grass cutting, litter picking and rejuvenation of areas at Winnersh Triangle.
Daniel will be with Nurture on a weekly basis every Wednesday until he starts a full year with them working either a 3 or 4 day week, depending on Daniel’s college schedule. Everyone at Frasers Property wants to wish him the best of luck during his placement.
Jason Brown, contracts manager at national grounds maintenance specialist, Nurture Landscapes said:
“As someone who lives with dyslexia myself, I know how difficult it can be to work with some form of disability. Fortunately, with Nurture, I’ve not only found a supportive employer but by overseeing our apprentice and internship programme, I’m privileged to help others. We are looking forward to Daniel joining us soon.”
