A business breakfast with Taylor Wimpey
Last week we hosted a business breakfast with Taylor Wimpey and their many sub-contractors. They included businesses in all trade areas including brickwork, scaffolding, dry-lining, painting and decorating, groundwork and plumbing. Year 10 and 12 Construction students had the opportunity to network with these employers, give them their CVs, tour them around the Construction area and generally make contact with them.
The feedback from employers was that they were extremely impressed with the facilities but more importantly our students. The students behaved in a very professional manner, showed their knowledge of what they had learnt so far in the Construction area and made valuable contacts proactively and without prompting. This is what the UTC is about – matching employers with work ready students.
