How the BBC reported on the building revolution first highlighted by CWF

Please follow and like us:

BBC Radio Stoke visited Victoria House in Hanley, Stoke on Trent where a group of construction students have rebuilt an abandoned pottery factory under a revolutionary training scheme backed by celebrity builder Tommy Walsh.

Engineering Real Results, the largest trades training organisation in the UK, has been buying up neglected and derelict properties in a multi-million pound move giving tradespeople of all ages a way round restrictive Government legislation which forces them to beg for unpaid work.

And now, the flats they have rebuilt from the wreckage of the factory are destined to house more students from Staffordshire university nearby.

This is the BBC’s report on the event.

  1. Our education system has long been neglecting the talented young men and women who should not be pushed down the academic path. They have so much to offer in fields of enterprise which don’t require a university education. Congratulations for putting this need for alternatives into action.
