Four Lancashire apprentices for the Construction Industry Training Board (CITB) are on their way to Uganda, having helped raise more than £12,500 towards the building of a school, which will help improve the learning environment and long term prospects for thousands of children.
Jonathan Hartley, Brandon Coppock, George Birbeck and Ted Mossop are among six employees from The Calico Group who will spend a total of three weeks in April working on the ‘One Brick at a Time’ (OBAAT) project.
The OBAAT initiative works through a skill exchange between UK construction colleagues and Ugandan construction trainees and graduates. The volunteers work on key education construction in schools and other educational sectors.
All four are employed by the Constructing for the Future (CtF) Apprenticeship Scheme.
