Jaycob Marr-Andrews has gone from strength to strength since graduating from RISE, starting an apprenticeship with a local masonry company in 2020 and winning Apprentice of the Year at the Master Builders Victoria South West Apprentice of the Year Awards in March 2021.
Jaycob completed the RISE program in 2019. He has almost finished the first year of his apprenticeship with Caruso Bricklaying and, with Caruso, is a valued member of the team working on the Chisholm Road Prison Project in Lara.
Two years ago, Jaycob was disengaged from school and didn’t see a clear pathway into work. Through his experience with RISE and his success at work, Jaycob has gained self-confidence and a positive outlook, and he’s earning well-deserved recognition for his achievements.
