Ryan Wyrill found it difficult to fit in at school and struggled to find anything he was either good at or interested in, but that all changed when he enrolled on a Brickwork course at Selby College.

From day one he was learning new skills, practical skills that he could put to good use, and he found he had a real flair for the job so much so that he scooped first place in the 2013 regional heat of the prestigious SkillBuild competition.

Ryan said; “I was really pleased and surprised that I did so well at SkillBuild, I never expected to win I just wanted to show people what I could do.”

Students with Ryan’s talents are in huge demand and after successfully completing his Level 2 Diploma in Brickwork at Selby College Ryan is now working as an Apprentice Bricklayer and gaining first-hand experience of the industry he hopes to make a name for himself in.
