Educating Pupils on Careers in Construction

Morganstone visited St Mary’s Primary School in Pembroke Dock and talked with the children about why Maths and English are so important from a young age, and why the construction industry is an exciting industry to work in.

The school is close to the Imble Lane development which Morganstone are currentely building on behalf of Pembrokeshire Housing Association.

Morganstone’s community engagement manager Antonia John and site manager Ben Aubrey talked to the children about what working in construction actually means and the various routes they can take to enter the profession.

Pembrokeshire Housing Association’s inspector of works Gary Meskimmon also introduced the role of housing associations and the many career paths available within the housing industry.

A site visit to the Imble Lane development is planned later on in the year for the pupils to learn more about the construction industry and reinforce the many roles available.

Antonia John, said:

“Construction builds the world we live in which is why it is so important to teach children about what it means to work in the industry. It provides a fantastic career with an endless stream of possibilities and careers to suit all skill sets.

We want to teach children the importance of maths and English because not only are they essential skills in life, but for those who might consider construction as a career in the future it becomes a necessity to climb up the career ladder.”
