As part of our Strategic Fit Commitment, we offered three Apprenticeship Students on-site work experience for one day a week for six weeks last October. At the end of the six week period the students gained enough competence to sit their Construction Skills Certification Scheme (CSCS).
Blue Light Partnership and Avon and Somerset Police are keen to involve the local community and have committed to 20 engagement activities with colleges and schools throughout the duration of the project. Students who are interested in a career in construction should see this as a great opportunity to get involved and gain experience.
The work experience has gone so well that Bridgwater in partnership with Miller are planning to provide this opportunity for another three students in February.
