Inspiring the next generation
21st November 2018
This month, Managing Director Nick Conway and Marketing Coordinator Kayleigh Moore attended Riddlesdown Collegiate’s job fair, held at Woodcote High School. It was a fantastic opportunity for Nick and Kayleigh to talk about the opportunities and innovation in the industry and challenge some of the students’ perceptions about careers in construction.
It was very encouraging that many students they spoke to were looking into apprenticeships and courses to put them on the right track for careers in architecture, surveying, engineering and essential trades. The right training is an important part of any career and at ITC we’re proud to actively help our team members progress not only in experience but qualifications. To date, we’ve supported 10 team members through university and have helped many more gain the important qualifications they need.
Investing in young people is a crucial way our industry will keep pace with the changing times and this is also vital for improving equality and diversity in our sector – read what Nick had to say on this very topic for Building Talk. Nick and Kayleigh greatly enjoyed their time at the job fair and look forward to more events in the future!
