NEW SOUTH DEVON UTC STUDENTS LEARN ON SITE WITH SOUTH WEST

Bob Mitchell and SDUTC students

Bob Mitchell and SDUTC students

The 20 pupils, all aged between 14 and 15, will start at the college in September. They were met by sales and marketing director, Brian Deacon; site manager, Chris Braley; and senior site manager, Bob Mitchell, who has just won a coveted NHBC Pride in the Job Award for his outstanding work at Kings Gate.

The group, who will be studying engineering and science, enjoyed a tour of the development and were introduced to the site team, learning about the different roles within the housebuilding company.

Commenting on the visit, Brian said: “The new students were incredibly enthusiastic and it was fantastic to see them so inspired. We had an interesting discussion with them on some of the engineering challenges we face when creating a new homes development, such as topography and providing the necessary services.

“We could definitely see some budding engineers eager to start their studies in September and we wish them every success.”

Alison Hannah, assistant principal at South Devon UTC said: “Gaining on-the-job experience is invaluable and really complements what the students learn in a classroom setting. We’re very grateful to Linden Homes for taking the time to pass on their knowledge and expertise – the pupils absolutely loved it.”

The SDUTC is working closely with local industry in the fields of engineering, the environment and water to offer GCSE studies for pupils from Year 10, plus A-Levels and BTECs for those aged 16-18. The college is supported by a number of significant employers and founding partners of the UTC, including Galliford Try, South West Water, Centrax, the Environment Agency and national charity Water Aid.
