Selco Builders Warehouse has supplied building materials to Bournemouth & Poole college and sponsored the Most Improved Student accolade at the college’s Construction Skills Awards.
The award at the college, which has more than 1,000 students and apprentices on its construction courses, was won by Max Williams, who is currently working towards a Level 1 Diploma in Carpentry & Joinery.
Des Rands, director of learning for construction skills, building services and built environment at Bournemouth & Poole College, said: “We have a very comprehensive and popular trade and construction offering and it’s vital that we have strong relationships with local building materials suppliers such as Selco.
“They have been fantastic in their support in providing us with materials which are crucial for our day-to-day work with the students and developing their skills in a variety of different trades.
“In addition, their support for our awards event was superb and another example of the close relationship we have built and are looking to continue.”
Nathan Cross, branch manager at Selco Poole, said: “Supporting the tradespeople of the future is an important part of our commitment of giving back to the local communities in which we operate.
“Bournemouth & Poole College do a fantastic job in providing the foundations for the future careers of hundreds of tradespeople every year who will ultimately go on to work in the local economy.
“We are delighted to be supporting the college in that mission and look forward to a long and successful relationship.”
