Case Study: Farrans & Parliament Hill School


Farrans began the £30 million redevelopment of Parliament Hill School in 2016. During the course of the scheme, Farrans hosted four apprentices through K10: one Construction Operative (Curtis Zanetti), whilst our two Electricians (Emre Kirdagli and Glenn Allan), and one Plumbing Apprentice (Javain St Marie) were on site under Harvey Group.

Despite spending varying times on site, across several areas of the development, each apprentice not only had a positive experience, but specifically mentioned the opportunity this project has given them to learn new skills they would not have access to any other way, allowing them to build a solid foundation for their career (pun intended!).

 “During my time here at Parliament Hill School, I have met a lot of great people and because of this, I have been able to learn various methods, which I can apply in the future of my career. What’s more, the various tasks I’ve been given have been instrumental in completing my NVQ qualifications.” – Glenn Allan, Electrical Apprentice

When asked for feedback from Farrans, Amy Cambridge – The Farrans Stakeholder Engagement Lead for the south of England – responded:

“Working with K10 on our Parliament Hill School build project has been a real pleasure, Peter Bannister has been inciteful and responsive, supporting the site team and the apprentices throughout their time on site, ensuring the process of employing and training apprentices ran smoothly.”
