Former student Chantelle Wrightson studied Level 1, 2 and 3 in Carpentry and Joinery and then stayed on to complete Level 1 and 2 Diploma in Plumbing , Chantelle said:

"I liked the thought of a career in Carpentry and Joinery as it allows you to be practical and social. I learnt a lot during my training particularly when it comes to working alongside other people from the trades. I enjoyed the hands on approach in the workshops and felt it provided a realistic setting for my future career. I enjoyed studying at Yorkshire Coast College so much that I stayed on to study plumbing before gaining an apprenticeship with Keepmoat. I am now studying for my HNC in Site Management."
