The College is delighted to be working in partnership with Taylor Wimpey West Scotland, where they are supporting an engaging live project on our Level 5 Foundation Apprenticeship in Construction.

Delivered at our Paisley campus to a range of East Renfrewshire secondary schools, the S4 & S5 pupils will receive support from the team at Taylor Wimpey West Scotland through regular college check-ins as well as the opportunity for on-site visits to bring the young people’s learning to life.

The aim of this exciting partnership is to inspire future young talent to consider the housebuilding industry as well as provide lecturers with support around the skills and quality that Taylor Wimpey West Scotland needs apprentices to deliver on its sites.

As part of this year’s course, the seven learners from Barrhead High, Eastwood High, St Luke's High, St Ninian's High and Woodfarm High have been set a challenge to design, build, and install new health and safety signage at two of Taylor Wimpey’s developments in the west of Scotland.

David Hunter, Trade Development Manager for Taylor Wimpey West Scotland, said:

“We are delighted to be forging this new relationship with West to support the learning and development of our young people. We are proud to be creating a range of positive opportunities to engage with our industry as we continue to nurture the next generation of talent into the business.”

Gary Hunter, Construction Lecturer, from West Scotland College said: “We are excited to have the support and expertise of the team at Taylor Wimpey West Scotland informing our Level 5 which helps to showcase the many opportunities available to our young people. It is through these great partnerships that we can build a strong, skilled workforce and inspire the next generation.”
