Dearne ALC Workshop

Eight ambassadors from the Made in Barnsley’s Cutlers’ ‘Better Learners, Better Workers’ programme attended a workshop at the  Construction Skills Village on Tuesday 11th  July 2017. The workshop was organised as part of Henry Boot Construction Better Barnsley development.

The Year 9 ambassadors were from Dearne ALC School in Barnsley and had the chance to learn all about the Construction Industry on a ‘real’ site environment. The day comprised of:

Full H&S site induction
Issued full Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) – Hard hat, high vis, safety boots, goggles and gloves. 
Better Barnsley Project Talk 
Construction Careers Talk
Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE) Bailey Bridge Activity
Rendering Activity

The ambassadors got stuck in despite the poor weather! Both Henry Boot and Skills Village staff were impressed by their maturity and teamwork skills.

Rhiannon, student from Dearne ALC said ‘Its been so much fun! Can’t we come back tomorrow’

Thank you to all our partners involved!
