South Staffordshire College and Redrow Homes came together this week to celebrate the success of fifteen hardworking Redrow employees who have successfully completed an apprenticeship programme
delivered by the College.
Along with Redrow Homes New Entrants Programme Manager Clare Horton, the employees, who have all completed a Level 3 apprenticeship in construction and the built environment for assistant site managers, were invited to celebrate their achievements at an intimate lunch event at the College’s 18th Century Rodbaston Hall on Wednesday 1st February.
The first of Redrow’s employee cohorts to complete this two year qualification, which is delivered in partnership with NHBC, the guests of honour were greeted by the College’s Head of Apprenticeships and Employer Engagement John Renshaw, who gave the guests a guided tour of the 180 hectare campus and new AgriSTEM Academy, which is home to cutting edge facilities for those studying towards qualifications in Construction, Engineering, Motorsport and many more.
With spirits undamped by the weather, the guests then returned to Rodbaston Hall where they formally received their awards from a delighted College Principal Graham Morley. Having congratulated the successful trainees and encouraged them to wholeheartedly pursue their ambitions, Graham added “We’re extremely pleased to have played a part in your journey; you should all be extremely proud of your achievements.”
With College staff having been thanked for their hard work and support by Redrow’s Clare Horton, John Renshaw spoke on behalf of the College to say
“We’re privileged to work alongside Redrow Homes, they are a fantastic employer and a valued customer of South Staffordshire College. It’s a pleasure to work with them to help their staff develop and celebrating the achievements of these employees is one of our proudest moments.
