Construction charity builds links between schools and industry

The Construction Youth Trust, a charity that promotes careers in the construction industry, has joined forces with Northfleet Technology College to introduce students to the built environment sector.

CYT’s Schools Partnership programme aims to create close links with schools by

delivering a series of activities, including assemblies to widen students’ knowledge of the construction industry and the careers within it. Students also have the chance to hear from inspiring volunteers about their journeys into construction.

The Northfleet project saw local construction contractors work with the students to refurbish their school's disused pavilion, turning the area into a construction hub.

Some of the students have been inspired to enter the construction career and have been supported to achieve the OCNL accredited Level 1 Award in Health & safety in a Construction Environment. They are currently studying for the CSCS test.

Cornelius Deyzel, Director of Learning Support at Northfleet Technology College, commented: “The Construction Youth Trust has supported some of our difficult to reach students by engaging them in an exciting project with visible and tangible outcomes.

“The project is a combination in which trade and industry work hand in hand with the students. Not only to share their skills and knowledge, but to give first hand advice and answer questions from the trades industry that the students might have. Students mentioned that they see these sessions as growth opportunities and helping them shape their ideas of possible future prospects.”
