Utilising materials donated to the college by Weber, the students in Plymouth have completed 50 square meters of rendering on a series of out houses on one of their sites. According to Rob, this “helped provide realistic training” for the level 3 full-time apprentices. The college also produced a Weber feature wall, located in the college’s main workshop.
Looking to the future, the college is planning on using some of Weber’s donated products on a project they’re undertaking at Dartmoor Zoo. They also plan to use and promote Weber products during its work experience days and look forward to taking part in further Weber training days.
“We are abundantly grateful and proud to be involved in the partnership,” Rob said of the Weber Elite College Partnership. “We continually strive to maintain outstanding teaching and learning, promote the use of Weber’s products and to inspire the next generation of plasterers and renderers.”
