The Thanet branch of independent builders merchant Chandlers Building Supplies sponsored the East Kent College’s Kent Skilled Up competition.
The event saw students from across the construction department complete a work-related challenge in six hours.
More than 40 students took part in the competition and were judged by tutors from Canterbury College.
The students placed first, second and third from each trade and were rewarded with toolboxes and tools from Chandlers and fellow sponsor Makita.
Thanet branch manager John Rose said: “We are always delighted to be involved with the Kent Skilled Up competition as it gives the students a chance to put their skills to the test in a ‘real’ situation. Good luck at the Kent finals to all the winners from East Kent College.”
