We are aware of the weather conditions across Cornwall currently and are monitoring the situation closely. The college is open as usual but staff and students are asked to travel only if safe to do so. We are expecting delays due to travel disruption. Absence reporting can be found here. Thank you for your patience.

Subjects studied: Level 2 Diploma in Bricklaying
Former hometown: Newquay
What’s next: Start an Apprenticeship with the College
Kane enjoys the creative freedom that the construction course at Truro and Penwith College provides and has created a variety of structures, from cavity walls to semi-circular arches. He particularly liked the practical elements of the course in his final term and appreciates the College helping him with the transition period of starting an Apprenticeship.
Kane said: “I chose a vocational course as I’m very practical. I’m not the best writer in the world so I wanted to learn by using my hands.
“My Dad is a bricklayer and I thought it would be good to follow in his footsteps as I enjoy labouring. I heard about the course and knew that is what I want to do.

“They treat you like an adult at College, it’s a more relaxed environment. All my friends came to this College because of the facilities and it’s not too far from where I live. I like the social aspect of College and love that I get to work with my friends.”
