Donation supports Construction training at Cambridge Regional College

February 21, 2022

Cambridge Regional College has taken delivery of a generous donation from partners, Bellway Homes.

Following a change in the industry specification for bricks, Bellway Homes found themselves with a surplus of materials that no longer met industry standards. Not wishing to waste the supply of bricks, Bellway Homes contacted the Construction team at Cambridge Regional College to see if the stock could be utilised in training student bricklayers.

Anthony Scott, Work Based Learning Manager for Construction and Motor Vehicle, said: “We would like to thank Bellway Homes for their kind donation and arranging delivery of the bricks to the Cambridge Campus. The cost and availability of construction materials has been an ever-increasing challenge and this donation will mean that our stretched resources will be alleviated to a degree. The bricks will be put to good use by our students to develop their brick laying skills within the college workshop.”

Bellway Bricks and Cambridge Regional College have an ongoing apprenticeship partnership to train the next generation of tradespersons entering the Construction Industry.
