As one of the largest providers of construction training in the Midlands, it was our pleasure to host the prestigious Guild of Bricklayers regional competition at our Basford campus on 5th May.

Six col­leges from across Not­ting­ham and Lin­coln took part in the com­pe­ti­tion and were judged on the qual­i­ty of work­man­ship and fin­ish, as well as good prac­tise, includ­ing health and safe­ty, clean­li­ness and pre­sen­ta­tion. Rep­re­sent­ing Not­ting­ham Col­lege was Elliot Wind­sor-Atkin, 19, who bat­tled it out in the Senior cat­e­go­ry. Elliot, who com­pet­ed last year in the Junior cat­e­go­ry, said: 

Elliot - construction

I real­ly enjoyed being part of the com­pe­ti­tion again. As a trades­per­son, you need to work to tight dead­lines and be ready to solve prob­lems, so this is real­ly good expe­ri­ence and a great addi­tion to my CV

 — Elliot Wind­sor-Atkin

It was won­der­ful to be back at Not­ting­ham Col­lege and to see stu­dents using the skills they’ve learnt on their courses. 

This com­pe­ti­tion is an excel­lent way to test stu­dents’ skills and to give them some expe­ri­ence, along­side their Col­lege stud­ies. Com­pet­ing against oth­ers of a sim­i­lar lev­el helps to build con­fi­dence and moti­vates them to raise their aspi­ra­tions. I was real­ly impressed with all the com­peti­tors this year. 

 — Guild of Brick­lay­ers Judge, Andrew Cainen
