Cambridge Regional College students plant path to success

Tuesday 11 September 2018

Cambridge Regional College is continuing to support local schools in the Huntingdon and Cambridge area, providing work experience and social action projects for students across an extensive curriculum programme.

The College has been working with Alconbury Church of England Primary School for the past four years, providing PE Teacher work experience and projects involving photography and carpentry students amongst others.

More recently students from the College's Cambridge Campus took on the task of providing brick planters for the school. The bricklaying students used their skills and experience to create several planters which were placed around the grounds to enhance the school's premises.

Stuart Pearson, Construction Tutor at Cambridge Regional College, supervised his students throughout the project. "It's a win-win situation, our students get hands-on experience in building the planters and the school get to enjoy the results."

The students also enjoyed working on the project, saying: "It provided a fantastic opportunity for us to gain great work experience which will set us up well for future employment in the industry" and remarking that it was "Good to be gaining industry experience in a real-life scenario".

Jane Watts, Head Teacher at Alconbury Church of England Primary School, was absolutely delighted with the results, saying: "We are thrilled with the planters and are already talking about other projects for Stuart's students for the next academic year."
