Three Pembrokeshire College learners recently attended the Regional Skills Wales Competition for the Built Environment held at Coleg Sir Gar, Carmarthen and are now all through to the national final.
The SkillBuild competition was open to all trainees preparing to work in the construction industry. Supported and organised by the Construction Industry Training Board (CITB), the competition has been successfully running now for over 40 years.
Carefully selected and put forward by their course tutors to compete were, Site Carpentry student, Daniel Haslam, Electrical student, Ben Ridley and Plumbing student, Liam Rowlands.
Following a series of practical challenges that tested their skills and construction training, they were all placed and look forward to progressing to the National Final that will be held in Coleg Cambria later this month.
Plumbing tutor, Nicky Rees was delighted with the result saying, “Liam entered the regional competition along with 12 other students from different colleges from West Wales. Liam did very well and has been chosen to compete in the Welsh National Finals. The team here at Pembrokeshire College wish him, Dan and Ben all the best for the final.”
