Shropshire’s built for success

A group of Shrewsbury College students have been successfully placed as the top talent in the region in a variety of construction trades. Six students recently took part in the regional stage of the SkillBuild competition, three of them taking first places, one a second place and one a third.
Marc Marshall from Telford excelled in his category of Electrical Installation, achieving first place in the region. Marc, an apprentice at Courtland Properties, said, “It was quite daunting at first but once the competition was underway it was really enjoyable… I was totally shocked to win first place but I’m really pleased with the result.”

Another local winner, Nick Damerum from Cressage, came third in Site Carpentry. He said, “It was my first time at SkillBuild and it’s been a fantastic experience. I’m really thrilled to have been placed in the top three in the region. It’s given me the motivation to work towards first place next year.”
Joe Northall from Chirk took first in Bricklaying, Luke Vaughan from Shrewsbury came second in Plumbing, and Andy Balmer from Baschurch placed first in the Site Carpentry contest.
