Plumbing Persistence Pays Off For Student

A plumbing student has finally sealed an apprentice place in order to complete his NVQ Level 3 after hundreds of attempts, reports the Coventry Telegraph.

Daniel Hayes, aged 17 from Coventry, was handed a lifeline by a local plumbing firm after his plight of being rejected over 500 times for an apprenticeship was reported in the national news.

The Midlands teenager will be taken on as a long-term apprentice if he completes a trial week of work experience and will be able to have his work practical assessed as part of his NVQ plumbing courses.

A couple of other young plumbers have already experienced the benefits of taking plumbing courses.

Gary Crooks, aged 23 from Hull, was named Student of the Year at The School of Construction and the Built Environment annual awards due to the skills he exhibited whilst learning on plumbing courses.

Tutor Ron Pashly said that the judges were impressed by his portfolio, examination performances and the all-round attitude he employed whilst taking the plumbing courses.
