Seven of our sixth formers took part in the Budding Brunels programme, from 9th to 11th October, organised by Construction Youth Trust. During this three-day course they completed the following activities:
- Interact with professionals from the industry (Engineers, Project Managers, Quantity Surveyors and Architects)
- See and have context of the works taking place at Hanover Square (Building site visit)
- Complete practical team based activities related to the Industry
- Engage in employability skills workshops – culminating in delivering a presentation and sitting a formal interview.
A student’s feedback:
‘Budding Brunel was an amazing experience because it opened my mind to the world of construction and helped me understand the importance of each role in the construction industry.’
