Kane’s Story

Kane knew he wanted to join a career where he could learn practical skills and the bricklaying course at Truro and Penwith College suits him well.

“There is a high standard of teaching at Truro College and the lecturers are always there to support you."

Subjects studied: Level 2 Diploma in Bricklaying

Former hometown: Newquay

What’s next: Start an Apprenticeship with the College

My story:

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.

“There is a high standard of teaching at Truro College and the lecturers are always there to support you.

“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.”
