The Horizon Project works with young people ages 13 – 19 (or up to 25 if they have learning disabilities) enabling them to gain vocational and personal skills, as well as accredited qualifications helping them back into school, further training or work.
On the 7th March 2019, we were delighted to welcome 13 trainees on to site, to help them develop their understanding of the industry and gain hands on experience within the skills trade they are studying.
Once they were kitted out with their branded PPE, they were given a talk on Health & Safety on site and a brief from the Project Manager on what the scheme entails. They were then walked around site to observe the trades hard at work. In addition, they also had a go at building a wall under the supervision of our brickwork supervisor.
We have scheduled visits every quarter with the Horizon Project, to further allow the trainees to develop their skills and experience on site. Our main objective is to help as many of the trainees as possible enter a job in their chosen trade – hopefully getting some work experience with our trades.
