Six work experience students worked hard at Taylor Wimpey's Barley Grange development in West Durrington

Aaron Feldberg,, who is studying level two brickwork at Northbrook MET, impressed Taylor Wimpey contractor Formation8 so much that he was taken on as an apprentice.

Formation8 explained Aaron worked well during his work experience and, because of his attitude and willingness to learn, offered him employment, which runs alongside his current course at college.

A group of six students worked at the housing development for six weeks, in a range of roles from carpentry to bricklaying.

Paul Ebbs, production director at Taylor Wimpey Southern Counties, said: “We take nurturing the next generation of construction talent very seriously at Southern Counties, which is why we’re only too happy to support the work that Greater Brighton Metropolitan College does.

“The skills that all six of these wonderful talents possess are invaluable to housebuilding and the wider industry, which is why we’re only too happy to give them the on-the-job experience that helps to put theory into practice.”
