Foundations for the Future
The Construction Youth Trust (CYT) has developed a new campaign for 2016 called ‘Foundations for the Future’. We have been working closely with the CYT for a number of years now so when they approached us to get involved we were only too happy to do so.
The campaign facilitates a direct partnership between a team of industry volunteers and a partner secondary school.
Workshops are delivered by the volunteers in the partner school over the academic year, to year 9 pupils. The chosen schools are ones that the majority of the pupils would not ordinarily get this exposure and where the pupils are from diverse and disadvantaged backgrounds.
The workshops cover construction professions, trades, women in construction and site visits.
Our partner school is the Alec Reed Academy in Northolt.
