Coast & Country has given teenager Adam Pearce the chance of a lifetime – his first step on the career ladder.
The 15-year-old pupil at Laurence Jackson School, Guisborough, has been declared the winner of Coast & Country’s Future Leaders scheme and has been awarded an apprenticeship with the housing and regeneration company, starting in 2011, as his prize.
Under the innovative project, students from four schools, in the Redcar & Cleveland area, were set a series of challenges.
They became involved in a series of community projects, which they devised and for which they were given a budget. These included community centre makeovers and the creation of patios and other amenities in residential areas.
An outward bound course was also held where team leadership and organisational skills were assessed.
