Published: May 5, 2021

Telford College’s bricklaying apprentices have come through their latest health and safety assessment with flying colours.

The property maintenance students recorded a 100% pass rate for the challenging exam.

Course tutor John Gregory said: “I’m proud of all the students who managed to pass. We have been preparing for it, dedicating study time at college and in remote lessons to ensure everyone was as prepared as they could be.

“Health and safety is a very important part of the construction industry, and these students have taken another step towards their careers.

“I just want to say a massive thank you and well done, they should be proud of themselves. I certainly am.”

The students include 18-year-old Robin Milner 18 from Shrewsbury, a former pupil of Mary Webb Secondary School in Pontesbury.

He is on the level two property maintenance apprenticeship, working at Shrewsbury School.

Robin says he loves everything about his apprenticeship. “It’s good to learn through practical tasks at work, and the theory and practical at college.

“I’m an outdoors person and I love the variety that my apprenticeship offers me, it’s good to work at Shrewsbury School – it’s such a big campus and there’s a lot to learn.”

Telford College has a dedicated training centre for those considering a career in the construction industry.
