With one eye on the future of the trade, Paslode have been working closely with New College Durham over the past couple of years, supporting some of their Carpentry apprenticeship students while they learn the skills they need on-site.

Back in 2019 we sponsored the College’s Carpentry and Joinery Apprentice of the Year award. The awards was won by Joseph Earl of Believe Housing (part of the Myers Group). As well as this prestigious accolade, Joseph also received a Paslode IM360Ci tool.

Joe was nominated thanks to his attitude, and guidance and support to others in his class. His enthusiasm was second to none, and he was the first in his class to complete his NVQ.

The Paslode team have also worked closely with the current Carpentry course intake, providing them with knowledge and advice as well as a loan of the tools they need to learn their trade.

Members of the Technical Support and Marketing teams have visited the college to talk about Paslode range and hope to be able to see the students again soon, once it is safe to do so again.

They have been supporting the students with advice around the applications that they are learning about on the current curriculum.

The students have also been challenged to supply content for sharing on the Paslode social media channels, with more to come over the next few months as the partnership continues.
