He also visited No 10 Downing Street to share his story. Lewis’ success goes to show how the bootcamp can help galvanise learners and help them to achieve their full potential.

“Regeneration Brainery is a unique experience that showcases what’s possible for young people and gives them a real insight into careers in regeneration and property. As the City’s leading technical college, and as a trusted partner of Regeneration Brainery, we are keen to show our learners the full range of potential roles they can take up in their chosen in Stoke-on-Trent and the surrounding area.”

“We can’t wait to come back to Stoke and show a brand-new cohort of students what the property industry has to offer. With more Partners than ever before, we can give students access to key players investing in Stoke and the surrounding area.

“They’ll meet the teams behind major city developments like Smithfield and Goods Yard, find out what’s involved in creating those new districts, and hopefully inspire them to join the industry and be part of the ongoing regeneration story.
