Kaden Diver, from Shiregreen and Connor Pryor, from Parson Cross, have both developed basic building skills in Chaucer School’s innovative construction centre - funded by Sheffield Housing Company - after witnessing Jake’s progress.

After honing their building techniques and improving their behaviour, attendance and exam prospects, Kaden and Connor’s hard work has secured them apprenticeships of their own.
