Ten CWA apprentices from King’s Lynn and Isle campus pitted their skills against apprentices from Carter Academy, Lowestoft College, Great Yarmouth College and City College, Norwich, at the Norfolk and Waveney Building Apprentices Competition, held at R.G. Carters in Drayton.
They competed for gold, silver and bronze medals in bricklaying, plumbing, painting and decorating, carpentry and joinery and electrical installation.
Students were given six hours to complete tough tasks, working under the scrutiny of their employers and fellow students.
They were assessed by a team of independent judges from the local construction industry and colleges.
