Studied: Level 1 Multiskills Construction followed by Level 2 Maintenance Operations and Level 2 and 3 Site Carpentry
When Harry Pass thought about coming to college, it was to study either motor vehicle or a construction-based course. He chose the multiskills pathway to construction course because of the variety of the activities he could get involved in. It also helped that he was already carrying out some of these with his dad.
He topped up his Level 1 qualification with a maintenance operations course. This helped him discover more of an interest in carpentry.
“The big choice of courses and all the workshops mean anyone can find something to study that’s interesting to them,” said Harry. “Plus the support from my tutors was good. And you can get involved in real life projects.
“One of the best things I did was helping design, build and fit a bridge for the college’s garden. We made it to improve wheelchair access. The garden looks much better now. It means more students can spend time here.”
Harry had been working for JCB and is now hoping to gain a site-based Apprenticeship or similar industry opportunity.
