parked drum roller

<p>My name is Allan, and I recently completed a Plant Bootcamp at the <a href="">Construction Training Centre (CTC)</a>, which has really helped open the doors to my next great opportunity.&nbsp;</p><p>I gained access to the course through an organisation called ‘Positive People’ and thought it would be a good course for me to complete as I’d always preferred outside, hands-on work instead of working in an office environment, which I’d previously done for more than 20 years in the Transport industry.</p><p>I’d always liked the idea of getting involved in the building/construction industry, so I started by enrolling for a Dumper/Roller course. This course was short and enabled me to get a foot in the door within the industry. The staff at the Construction Training Centre were extremely helpful and approachable. My tutor, in particular, was insightful and inspiring.</p><p>Upon completion of the course, it took some searches to find employment due to my lack of experience, but I eventually was offered employment via an agency called ‘Options’, where I was working on the A39 in Minehead, building a new footpath/cycle path for four weeks.</p><p>Following this, after a short break and searches, I found work through another agency, ‘Harbon’. This time I was working in Wincanton on a biomass plant, as a dumper driver. This work is still ongoing, allowing me to receive a stable income.</p><p>After being fortunate enough to gain some experience in the industry, I would like to go back to the CTC to complete the 360 digger and telehandler courses - I feel they would give me a great advantage for my future career.</p><p>I would encourage those out there considering a course at the CTC to definitely give it a go – if you are not work shy and enjoy working in the elements, I would recommend looking at what opportunities are on offer in construction.</p><p>Thank you, Weston College, for the perfect introduction to the Construction industry!</p><p><a href="">Find out more about the CTC, here!</a></p>

Learners sat together at ESOL celebration, whilst taking part in a quiz

<p>In a year filled with challenges and triumphs, we are thrilled to announce the outstanding achievements of our English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) learners.</p>

<p>These remarkable individuals have not only embraced the English language but have excelled beyond expectations, showcasing their dedication, resilience, and unwavering spirit. As we reflect on the past year, it is evident that their journey has been one of growth, empowerment, and triumph.</p>

<p>Amidst this group of exceptional individuals, a few stories shine particularly brightly:</p>

<p><strong>Muhammad: Rising to the Challenge</strong></p>

<p>Muhammad, who joined our class in February, wasted no time in making his mark. From the beginning, he engaged actively in class discussions and extended a helping hand to his fellow Afghan learners who faced challenges. When it came time for exams, Muhammad's dedication paid off. With a mere 3 points missed across two exams, he achieved a staggering total of 197 out of 200. His success was not only anticipated but celebrated, as he proved himself to be an incredible young man capable of achieving remarkable feats.</p>

<p><strong>Al Hadi: From Shy to Stellar</strong></p>

<p>Al Hadi's journey was one of transformation. Starting the course with trepidation in September, he gradually gained confidence and momentum. By January, he had found his stride, and his progress was nothing short of remarkable. His efforts culminated in the May speaking exam, where he achieved a perfect score—placing him at the pinnacle of the class. Al Hadi's story demonstrates that growth often emerges from stepping out of one's comfort zone and embracing challenges with determination.</p>
