Two Construction students from Dearne Valley College recently achieved success at a regional industry competition. ‘Skillbuild’ is the largest multi-trade competition for construction students, trainees and Apprentices and covers over 10 different craft occupations including plastering, bricklaying and carpentry, among others.
The students, Hannah Greenway and Kurt Stevens, put themselves forward to represent Dearne Valley College at the regional heat of the competition which took place at Hartlepool College in June. Both students achieved success, with Hannah placing first in the ‘Plastering Senior Entrants’ category, and Kurt finishing in fourth place in the ‘Plastering New Entrants’ group.
Kurt has represented the College numerous times at construction industry competitions always achieving highly. Huge congratulations to our students for their success and to the staff who have supported them!
