New Carpentry and Joinery Course Carves World-Class Opportunity for Strabane
North West Regional College has announced details of a new full time Carpentry and Joinery course to start in Strabane in September 2017. The Level 2 course, based at Strabane’s Derry Road campus, offers a diverse range of theory based learning and training, as well as work experience with an employer. Study areas include: Practical projects; Building technology; Employability and Work placement.
Prospective students could find themselves following in the footsteps of NWRC student of Carpentry, Cameron Nutt, who has been selected to represent Team UK at the World Skills Final in Abu Dhabi in October. WorldSkills UK, which helps young people ‘Go Further, Faster’, is spearheading the use of competition in the workplace, training centres, schools and colleges to inspire the next generation and fill the skills gap.
Cameron, who is studying at NWRC’s Greystone Campus in Limavady has been selected alongside a team of the UK’s elite young skilled men and women to go for gold against the rest of the world. This is the fourth consecutive year that a student from North West Regional College has been selected to take part in Worldskills UK.
Manager of Strabane Campus Angela McConnell said: “NWRC Strabane is delighted to introduce the Level 2 Carpentry and Joinery course. This is an excellent opportunity for those looking to launch their career or indeed change career paths. The course offers a combination of both theory classes and hands on work experience. The introduction of this course is also an excellent opportunity for Strabane in terms of trying to fill the current skills gap. I look forward to welcoming our new students.”
