Work Experience Success
Year 10 students concluded their 2 week work experience placements earlier this month. Putting their skills to test our students have been working hard on projects in the Cambridgeshire area.
Sam who has spent his time with R G Carter over the last two weeks. Sam's manager Andrew had the following to say about the placement: 'We are delighted to support GPUTC with their work experience placement, providing Sam with an introduction to construction, architectural and engineering design. We recognise the importance of developing the next generation of professionals joining the industry and look forward to providing further work experience and graduate/trainee recruitment opportunities alongside GPUTC in the future'.
Amy spent her two weeks with Skanska and was tasked with working on a live project to design a new roundabout. This consisted of a site visit, conducting a risk assessment, research and CAD modelling. On the final day of her work experience, she delivered a 30-minute presentation to the team, outlining her findings and recommendations for the project. She was excellent and Skanska have asked her to return in the future!
