Construction Students Build on Skills in Competition
9th March 2018
Construction students put their skills to the test when they battled against each other in a trade competition.
More than 200 students from a range of subject areas, including brickwork, painting & decorating, electrical installation and carpentry, took part in the four day event at the college’s Construction Innovation centre.
The event was sponsored by Speller Metcalfe, who judged 12 competitions and presented prizes of a £50 voucher to the winners of each discipline.
Students were challenged to complete a set task within five hours, with activities including building a hollow pillar for brickwork students and producing a circle with monochromatic colours and gold leaf decoration for painting learners.
Project leader at Speller Metcalfe Jonathan Gisbourne said: “We were delighted to be able to get involved in this student competition.
“The standard has been really impressive, but more than that the attitude of the students involved has been excellent.
“We have now organised some work experience placements for students, and hope to get involved in the competition next year.”
Curriculum Manager Joel Dalhouse: “This competition has been a great confidence boost for our students, and allowed them to demonstrate how much they have learnt since starting their courses in September.
“We really appreciate having an industry leader come in to give feedback and guidance to our learners.
“We are proud of the work our students have produced and hope this further guidance will improve their career prospects.”
