“This fantastic award is recognition of our unique project with Walkergate Primary School to create an externally quality assured “Junior Construction Crafts” programme.   The children, aged between 8-14 now have an accredited EDL qualification in brickwork, joinery, plaster boarding and painting the only construction course of its kind in the UK.   We are especially proud of the outcomes of this project, which have included raising skills, aspirations, attendance and confidence in young people”.
