The first of our virtual work experience programmes for secondary school pupils is open for applications.
We're passionate about providing learning opportunities for young people in the places where we work. This year, due to Covid-19, we've had to think differently about how we give pupils a taste of the construction industry and the range of career paths open to them. Be one of the first to take part in a Robertson virtual work placement – registration and participation is free.
Our virtual work placement will give young people the opportunity to connect with the construction industry. Throughout their placement young people will gain an introduction to our industry, our organisation and careers within it, as well as the opportunity to recognize and develop the skills needed for the world of work.
Our first placement opportunity will be over three sessions, young people will take part in our work based challenge to design a new construction project. Young people will learn how to research, plan and design, and identify the various types of roles needed for their construction project. Throughout the placement young people will meet members of Team Robertson who will share their knowledge and expertise to support their work based challenge.
This virtual work placement is aimed at the senior school phase 15+ age group and will be held over three days from 1st to 3rd March 2021 from 10am to 1pm. The opportunity is not only ideal for those interested in Construction, it is also suitable for the development of personal and work related skills for all learners.
How to register/apply: Schools should register with Speakers for Schools - complete the online form so your pupils can take part.
Pupils will then be able to complete the pupil registration and register for our "Bringing Construction To You" opportunity.
Closing date for applications: 12th February 2021
Number of pleaces available: 30 places are available for our first programme and pupils will be notified of the outcome of their application by 19th February 2021.
