School Catch Up Programme

This contractor is working with Kirkby College to provide work experience for their construction department.  With the pandemic over the last year the students will be partaking in the catch up programme which runs through the summer holidays.

They have arranged for their bricklaying subcontractor to supply materials and supervision to assist the students to construct brick panels in their welfare area on site.  This will provide the students with valuable ‘hands on’ experience.

The company CSR Manager and the owner of the bricklaying contractor will be present to discuss opportunities for apprenticeships and future careers in construction.

It has also been well documented through the pandemic that vulnerable children and students have been badly affected in terms of hot meal provision that ordinarily would have been provided in their school or college.  As such, they are partnering with Vision 2020 who are a local social enterprise, to provide hot meals throughout the work experience.  The meals will be purchased by the contractor which not only supports the local social enterprise, but provides the students with a hot meal that they may otherwise not have access too.
