One of the things we pride ourselves on at Folkestone College are our links with local businesses, who allow our students onsite to help them gain hands on work experience.
Our student Ciaran Ellen was fortunate enough to have several days’ work experience with Browns Construction.
Ciaran is a Level 2 Plastering student and has also studied Level 2 Site Carpentry.
While on placement, he was able to use his skills in carpentry to carry out some work for the client.
Speaking about the placements, Will Brown said, “All the students you’ve sent so far have been great!”
It’s fantastic to hear how well our students are getting on during their placements with our partners.
The construction industry is currently booming, with lots of opportunities for young people to start their careers. Getting practical experience is therefore vital!
A big thank you to Browns and all our fantastic partners!
