Community: Supporting Local Students
Steve Foord, our Construction Director, recently welcomed a group of mature students to Wateringbury Way, our latest development of new homes in Eastbourne.
The construction students from East Sussex College had a tour of the site and the homes which are currently under construction. They spent time learning about the importance of health & safety, and the different roles that combine to bring a development to completion.
We know from feedback from the colleges and schools we work with, that site visits can really supplement classroom learning. The opportunity to speak with our team and learn more about the career paths that exist within the sector is also beneficial.
Supporting Ratton School
In addition to hosting students on-site, we also go into education settings.
To help school leavers prepare for work, Steve also took part in mock job interviews at Ratton School this week. He is looking forward to participating in their ‘What’s My Line of Work’ event in March too, when he will be speaking more about his career path and experience, and his role within The Park Lane Group.
