Coleg Cambria Construction Courses Equip Students for the World of Work
Coleg Cambria Deeside Construction students have secured themselves Maintenance Apprenticeships with local housing maintenance and repair company, Cambria Maintenance Services, part of Wales & West Housing.
Two Coleg Cambria Brickwork students, brothers Sam and Lewis were actively seeking employment when Cambria Maintenance Services approached the College’s Construction department to recruit suitable candidates to fill their apprenticeship vacancies.
The brothers were given the opportunity to interview for the posts and after receiving excellent feedback regarding their interviews, both students were delighted to be offered the apprenticeships.
Sam and Lewis will return to Coleg Cambria Deeside as day release students.
Dave Roberts, Deputy Director of Construction at Coleg Cambria Deeside said:
“Getting students into work is our main goal in the Construction department at Coleg Cambria. We work very closely with the local industry to ensure we are providing not only the right calibre of learner for their needs, but also adapting training programmes to suit local industry needs wherever possible.
“It is a testament to this collaboration working effectively that two of our learners have been taken on by one forward thinking and driven organisation. We are always proud of any of our students who get an apprenticeship.”
Nigel Parry, Head of Cambria Maintenance Services North, said:
“I was so impressed with the two students that I had no choice but to offer them both an apprenticeship with Cambria Maintenance Services. I’m delighted to give Sam and Lewis a chance to find work on an apprenticeship in their local community. It not only benefits them as well as Cambria, but also the local economy.”
