Howdens sponsorship allows Joiners rewarding results

At the start of the year, the Hawick branch of Howdens Joinery sponsored the College’s Carpentry & Joinery department by donating materials as well as providing an interesting and informative talk on kitchen design and planning.


Their helpful input enabled our apprentice students to gain knowledge and experience with fitting, planning and purchasing modern kitchen fitments.

Those students have recently constructed demo kitchens using the materials provided by Howdens, and are pictured above with the finished results.

A college spokesperson commented: “Our thanks go out again to Howdens for providing this valuable opportunity to our students who have been able to get hands on with quality materials as well as see a rewarding end result of their ongoing learning.”
