Learners look to build on work experience success

Scott Burke and Keelan Diblasi, Level 2 Carpentry learners at Huntingdonshire Regional College, have completed a highly successful work experience placement with RG Carter Building Ltd…so successful, in fact, that they have been invited back in 2016.

The pair assisted in constructing the purpose-built Club complex for Urban & Civic at Alconbury Weald and the company paid for them to complete their Health & Safety CSCS Card training during their placement.

Scott and Keelan approached Angie Scotcher, an HRC Job Coach, to request the initial placement and haven’t looked back since.

They were presented with toolboxes and tools by the company after completing their first placement and RG Carter have offered them more work experience with the company on a restoration project also based at Alconbury.

Scott said: “I enjoyed working with the team of carpenters and I’m grateful for the experience with RG Carter. I’m pleased they have invited us back next year.”

Keelan added: “We worked with some great colleagues and we really appreciate the toolbox gifts they gave us.”

The Urban & Civic project used sustainable materials to construct a suite of offices, meeting rooms, a boardroom and gym.

Keith Furnell, client manager for Urban & Civic, said: “Scott and Keelan were very proactive worked really well with the team.”
