Hugh Baird College and Howdens Bootle Join Forces to Provide World-Class Opportunities for Students

Hugh Baird College is pleased to announce a new partnership with leading kitchen supplier Howdens. The collaboration will offer students at the College the opportunity to receive hands-on training and work experience with a reputable and successful company.

As part of the partnership, Howdens Bootle will provide expert training to students studying the College’s carpentry and joinery courses. This will give students a chance to gain valuable skills and knowledge that will set them up for success in their future careers.

The kitchen supplier will be donating supplies such as flatpack kitchens, worktops and doors to the College on an annual basis to assist students with their practical sessions.

Several students will have the opportunity to complete in-house training with tradespeople at the Bootle depot, providing them with real-world experience and a chance to apply their trade in an external setting. In addition, the students will be able to access discounts on materials available from the supplier.

Hugh Baird College Director of Professional Construction and Trades, Paula Waltmaier, said:

“We are thrilled to be partnering with Howdens Bootle. This collaboration will offer our students top-quality training from a leading industry player, and we are confident it will be a valuable addition to their education.”

Adam Roberts, Lead Representative from Howdens, added:

“We are excited to work with Hugh Baird College to provide training and valuable experiences for their students.”

“At Howdens Bootle, we are committed to supporting the next generation of skilled tradespeople, and this partnership allows us to do just that. We look forward to seeing the talented students from Hugh Baird College go on to successful careers in the carpentry and joinery industry.”
