Practicalities of a Construction Project

Providing opportunities to gain practical experience on-site is important to increase interest in construction. 

A career in construction can be very rewarding, it is therefore important to create an environment where students can gain first hand experience and a taste for construction opportunities themselves.

One site introduced construction prospects using a programme based on a real-life project:

  • A programme was set up over a 12 week period for 24 year nine girls from two different schools to introduce them to the practicalities of construction;
  • The programme was based over a building project where each week’s module covered a certain aspect from creating a client’s brief, producing a feasibility, modelling ideas etc;
  • In each module an external practitioner was used to explain requirements;
  • The programme was completed in December with a presentation to a panel of experts.
