Firms encourage young people with designs on construction

Two of leading lights from the county's construction sector have been doing their bit and more to encourage the next generation into their industries.

Family firm EG Carter spent last week mentoring five work experience students from Holmleigh Park High School, Tuffley, and two from Chosen Hill School, also in Gloucester.

Darryl Evans, Phillip Godwin, Ryan Morris, Marek Kuczynski, Alisha Mullins, Toby Wakefield and Elliot Martin all worked alongside our employees as they experienced work life in construction.

Their day to day varied from site visits, surveying meetings, working with Quattro Architects and looking at the practical side of a construction site.

Alisha Mullins from Holmleigh Park High School wanted to learn about the construction process, from design conception to project handover.

She spent two days at Quattro Architects to see how closely firms in the construction industry work together.

Joshua Carter, contracts manager and mentor of the apprentice and management trainee scheme, said "E G Carter & Co Ltd get involved with work experience week each year, it's all about encouraging young people to take an interest in the working world as well as finding something that inspires them.

"We have worked together with Beaufort Co-op Academy for many years now, and it's great to help the future generation find their passion."
