Promoting the Industry to Schools During the Coronavirus Pandemic

The company have an ongoing commitment to work with local schools to promote the industry and set targets with annual levels of engagement. Due to the COVID-19 restrictions resulting in school closures arranging to visit for these events was not possible.

However, the company did not want to suspend this so through innovative thinking, a virtual remote event with presentation and interactive projects has been created, entitled ‘Meet the Professionals’, which can be ran in two formats.

Option 1 – For schools where pupils have returned the company will connect to the classroom via a live stream. Presentations and quizzes carried out and an interactive marshmallow build task (materials of which are delivered to school before along with hard copies of information). The build task is judged remotely by MSS via video.

Option 2 – For schools where the pupils are not back in class then connection is made with adaptation to the video streaming technology the school have adopted for online learning. The format of the event is the same but with pre-recorded sessions and slides emailed in advance in case of technical issues. The build task is instead an interactive virtual activity centred around ‘Team Building’.

This example of best practice is just one way that projects can work to tackle the virus and reduce the spread. For full guidance and the latest Government advice read the Construction Leadership Council’s Site Operating Procedures.
