Joinery and carpentry graduate students at Rodsbaston College in Penkridge now have more materials to help them with their studies thanks to a donation from a commercial kitchen supplier.
Howdens Cannock has donated over £1,500 worth of materials to the College, including kitchen cabinets, worktops, doors and flooring.
Rodbaston College, part of South Staffordshire College, offers a wide range of courses for young people wishing to pursue a career in the construction industry such as: B. carpentry, carpentry, bricklaying and construction.
Howdens Cannock Depot Manager Tom Walker said: “We have been supporting the college for a number of years but I had a tour of the facilities recently and they are amazing. It was great to see the students working with some of the materials we provided.”
Students currently completing the Joinery and Joinery Diploma course will graduate in June, when Howdens will also award them kitchen fitter ‘starter kits’ worth over £120. The kits contain some everyday items that students will need at the beginning of their careers.
Clive Coley, Construction and Plumbing Curriculum Manager said: “Our students are incredibly passionate and committed to learning the skills required for a career in the trades and as you can imagine we flow through a lot throughout the course Materials It’s fantastic to have support from local businesses like Howdens.”
