Construction Students Build On Their Industry Knowledge

Students looking to learn more about the construction industry have been given a tour around a new homes development in West Bridgford.

A group of Year 10 students from Rushcliffe School who have enrolled on the BTEC construction and built environment course visited Linden Homes’ Wilford Fields development for a guided tour of the building site.

Students were given a full site safety presentation before being shown around the development by construction staff to get an insight into each on-site role, and were given bags containing literature on the construction industry by Linden Homes.

Jim Dunning, who leads the construction course at Rushcliffe School, said: “Our students had a fantastic time on-site at Wilford Fields learning about all the different aspects that make up the industry and spending valuable time in a real-life building environment, which supports their learning development as part of the course.

“The visit provided great insight and we’d like to thank the team at Linden Homes for arranging all of this for our benefit.”

Wilford Fields is a development of 121 private homes currently being built by Linden Homes off Wilford Lane in West Bridgford.

Paul Eaglefield, Contracts Manager for Linden Homes East Midlands, said: “The on-site team at Wilford Fields has a wealth of experience throughout the full spectrum of the construction industry, so we were pleased to be able to share some of our knowledge with the students of Rushcliffe School during their visit to the development.

“It is hugely important to provide young people with the opportunities to learn about the industry and continue the momentum of training and recruiting skilled workers into jobs, so it was great to be able to welcome Rushcliffe’s students to our site.

“We are pleased that the students enjoyed their visit to Wilford Fields and we hope to see some of them again in the future, putting their various skills into action.”

A selection of three, four and five-bedroom homes are currently available at Wilford Fields.
