It was fantastic to welcome 14 new students from Chantry Academy that are undertaking the Construction & Built Environment Qualification with us over the next year. The programme, which is the second of its kind we have run for Chantry Academy, provides students with an in-depth knowledge and understanding of the built environment and practical skills that they can transfer to the built environment too.
Our aim is to give the students the opportunities that they may not usually receive in mainstream education. The students, who are currently in year 9 at High School, will receive a mixture of practical training across their course including plumbing, brickwork, roofing & carpentry. This mixture of skills will provide them will a solid foundation into construction trades and enable them to pursue the area they feel most passionately about once they leave education.
