Futureme sponsors Technology Celebration of Learning

Five of our Technology students had extra cause for celebration when recently awarded with special prizes, sponsored by Futureme. The prizes were announced at their Celebration of Learning event for their success during their work placements.

Construction crafts student, Daniel Jefferson, has gone above and beyond with regards to the College’s work placement expectations. Daniel nominated himself to go engage in numerous work placement projects in the community. He has worked alongside his Dad to help out with the family business, and has undertaken work experience projects organised by the College. Daniel demonstrated a very professional manner with the customers during his work placement.

Painting & Decorating student, Phoebe Collins, has shown great commitment towards both her studies and part-time job. She has ensured attended all of her lessons and completed all of her college work to a high standard. Phoebe has taken part in work experience projects, such as numerous projects with Beamish, the Wright building company and Learning for life at Consett. She has worked considerably hard to ensure all projects are completed and has demonstrated her ability to progress within the college.

Carpentry and Joinery student, Ryan James, has carried out a successful work experience placement and has shown high levels of commitment and hard work which led to him gaining an apprenticeship from this. He is currently studying on his apprenticeship, working for a company called Chris Laverick Joinery. Ryan had undertaken a 2 week work placement prior to getting the apprenticeship, where he proved he was suitable for an apprenticeship.

Brickwork student, Colin Hollins, has travelled a significant distance in terms of progression in this year on Brickwork. Colin has undertaken work experience which he has organised himself. He has visited Beamish to improve on his skills and see how other businesses work. Collin has used his own initiative to practice his skills outside of college. He has provided evidence to show that he has done work on his own house.

Motor Vehicle student, Clayton Donald, holds down two jobs whilst studying for his demanding Level 2 motor vehicle course.
