Top chippy

Joinery student, Jack Charlton was presented with a top award at the Chesterfield College Joinery Celebration of Achievement evening at the College’s conference centre, at J29a, Markham Vale.

Jack was presented with the award by college deputy principal, Julie Richards for his excellent course achievements over the past year and in recognition of his fantastic performance at the UK SkillBuild competition in Nottingham, where he achieved third place in the Bench Joinery category.

Jack said: “I’m really grateful that the College gave me the opportunity to compete and I took a lot out of the experience. I enjoyed the surprise element of not knowing what I would be making on the day and the fact we had to complete it within a certain time, which is like the working world of joinery.”
