Year 10 BUILD Workshops

On Tuesday 9th May 2023, the majority of Year 10 students were lucky enough to attend a workshop focused on providing an insight into construction careers. Students participated in a variety of hands-on stations including: plumbing, bricklaying, electricals, carpentry and tiling. 

Led by BUILD, a private construction training centre, based in Hayes, the students really enjoyed themselves and the BUILD staff described our students as ‘terrific’ throughout all sessions. 

BUILD is passionate about supporting young people to develop their skills within the trade industry, and believes it is a career that offers young people a bright future. Our students certainly enjoyed themselves, with many interested in the range of options this career field can offer.

Leeson, Year 10, told us: “I really enjoyed it and it gave me an idea on what to do when I leave school. I really enjoyed the plumbing course as it seems like good fun and good money for the age you can start at.”

Halimah, Year 10, said: ‘It was interesting to see how many roles there are in the construction industry. I thought the BUILD team who led the day were really friendly.’
