Kyle Catterall is ready for his German adventure
A BUDDING Twin Valley Homes painter and decorator has been given the chance of a lifetime on a cultural exchange to Germany.
As part of the Leonardo da Vinci Programme, 22-year-old trainee Kyle Catterall has been given the chance to travel to Bocholt College for a three-week trip to work and learn as part of a 12-strong party from Accrington and Rossendale College.
Kyle, who recently received a commendation in the YouthBuild UK awards, will live with a German family, work for an employer and will also spend some time in the classroom learning alongside the students of Bocholt.
But there will also be plenty of time for exploration, which includes museums, a visit to industrial giant Henkel and a trip to see a Bundesliga game.
A delighted Kyle said: “My career has come on leaps and bounds since joining Twin Valley Homes and this is really the icing on the cake.
“Being able to learn in a different culture will be a really fascinating experience for me and I’m really looking forward to it.”
Ian Bell, Head of Twin Valley Homes, said: “We put a lot of time, money and effort into developing young people and we’re delighted to see that Kyle is reaping his just rewards.
“It’s fantastic to see trainees grasping the chance they’ve been given and we hope Kyle makes the most of his trip to Germany.”
