Kinan Cumberbatch

I chose the programme because I have an interest in the construction trade and I want to know the ins and outs of every trade within it. So far, I have learnt about the importance of health and safety, surveying, building regulations, construction designs, construction principles and construction technology. My favourite part of the programme was graphical detailing because I enjoy plotting out the inside of buildings.

After finishing this programme, I want to either get an apprenticeship or learn another trade like plumbing or electrical engineering. I would recommend people to come MidKent College to study because of the friendly atmosphere of the College.

Both tutors are are very friendly and helpful. I did my industry placement with my stepdad and learned how to build a skylight, a built-in wardrobe, how to tile a bathroom and most importantly how to use power tools. We went on a trip to Canterbury to look around Canterbury Christ Church University and to look at the structure of some of the older buildings in Canterbury to compare them to newer builds.
