Harrow Way Lay Career Foundations with Construction Trip

October 29th, 2018 Comments off

Harrow Way continue to push careers to the top of the agenda with a recent trip to Foreman Homes and VIVID to give students an insight into the construction industry. The Year 10 students were given behind the scenes access to the construction site in Charlton where the region’s largest private home builder and Hampshire’s largest provider of affordable homes are building the Peake Meadow development.

The trip was led by Year 10 Progress Leader David Cade who said: “Without the opportunity to explore in-depth the career potential of an industry it is very easy to miss the possibilities.
