The Guernsey Building Trades Employers’ Association held its annual Gala Dinner & Recognition Awards on Friday 25 September at Farmhouse Hotel.
The College was delighted to be a part of the evening, celebrating the success of our apprentices on the various building industry apprenticeship programmes. During the evening the GBTEA launched its new promotional video ‘I Wouldn’t Say No to Construction’. The video highlights the amazing career opportunities available in this diverse industry and illustrates to students the alternative career paths available on the island via the Guernsey Apprenticeship programme. You can view the video on our Building & Construction apprentice page HERE
