Talented teenager Hartley Wiseman has been given the tools to help him build his dream career in construction.
For the last six years Pennyfarthing Homes has been working closely with the New Milton school to support its students who would like a career in the construction industry.
And as part of this the company sponsors a construction award to reward the hard work and achievement of outstanding students.
This year’s recipient Hartley is a Year 11 Arnewood student who has recently completed a BTEC level 2 Certificate in Construction with flying colours.
Hartley, whose ambition is to become a skilled craftsman in the construction industry or engineering, said: “I am so pleased and proud to get the award – the sponsorship is really going to help me buy the tools I need. I would like to thank my teachers and Pennyfarthing for everything.”
The partnership between The Arnewood School and Pennyfarthing Homes sees students visiting building sites to learn how the construction industry works in practice.
This year 25 construction students visited Pennyfarthing’s development site The Scarletts on Whitefield Road, New Milton where 15 town centre departments are being built.
Headteacher at The Arnewood School, Nigel Pressnell, said: “This is a well-deserved award for Hartley who has put in so much effort towards his goal of working in the construction industry.
“It is fantastic that our students have been given this opportunity by Pennyfarthing Homes to get a real insight into the world of work.
“This hands-on experience enhances their classroom study no end and also helps our students make clearer decisions on what they’d like to do when they leave school.”
