Beginning on Monday the 8th June, Clifton Community School students took part in the Willmott Dixon “Opening Doors” project to Work Experience and Apprenticeship Opportunities.
Students from Year 9 and Year 10 were selected and the project started with a 5 day ‘Opportunity Knocks’ programme that gave students an introduction into the construction industry. This involved:
> Health and Safety
> Customer Care
> Trade sessions including plastering, painting, and carpentry.
This was a fantastic opportunity and the boys completing the 5 day project will now go on to a work experience placement with a dedicated mentor from Willmott Dixon.
The feedback from the boys was very positive and they are now looking forward to the next stage!
