Sam Beck - congratulations and well done!
We are proud to report the exceptional achievement by Sam Beck this week as he has been awarded the BCITO (Building and Construction Industry Training Organisation) Certificate of Achievement.
As a Gateway student, this year Sam has been going to work experience one day a week with a local building firm called Gary Fraser Building and doing related Unit Standards in class. At work, he has done a wide variety of tasks on residential building projects including putting up gib board, installing pink batts and building decks.
In class he has been highly motivated and organised to be able to earn this award by completing a whole package of standards with a value of 28 credits at Level 2.
The units he has worked on include safe use of power tools, calculations in the workplace, awareness of Health and Safety, selection of timber and a lot more besides. He will be he will be attending the Building Pre Apprenticeship course at Southern Institute of Technology next year so we wish him well with this. Also, many thanks to his employer for the opportunities he has given him this year.
