This week, On Site Bristol visited Knowle DGE to offer an overview of the construction industry, exploration of apprenticeship possibilities, how to search for employers and how to apply to On Site Bristol.
As well as offering these insights to the students, Louise Weller from On Site Bristol, then engaged students in a range of practical activities. Working in groups, they built doors, a plumbing water system and took part in a construction myth buster activity.
The Myth Buster activity encouraged the students to generate discussion and to challenge the stereotypes and perceptions associated with the construction sector. This activity also served to raise awareness of the construction process, the process of project planning, and timescales involved.
A big thanks to On Site Bristol for a thoroughly enjoyed activity.
