Canterbury College’s multi-skilled students showcased their joinery and carpentry talents at a county-wide competition.

The challenging tasks tested the students on accuracy and precision and saw them complete a mock up, model house roof with different angle pitches and a joinery basic frame.

The inter-college competition was held at West Kent College, Tonbridge and saw students battle it out in the day long event.

Zac Hope is studying Level 1 Carpentry and Joinery. He impressed the judges who unanimously awarded him first place in the junior category.

Lecturer Craig Munn applauded his work. He said: “I think Zac’s joinery frame build was the most complicated job of the day due to the intricate joints and finishing.”

Zac said: “I’m really pleased to have come first and I enjoyed the day – it’s useful to put what we learn into practice.

Craig was also impressed with John Meadows a Year 1 Level 2 site carpentry apprentice.

He added: “John’s only been studying since January and never completed a task like he was set.  He came second to all second year and third year students.
