'Bridge the gap' - Year 9

This Monday the whole of year 9 took part in an Engineering activity day titled ‘Bridge the Gap’.  The day was delivered by Preston’s College alongside Conlon’s Building Contractors.  The students got first-hand experience of the types of career that are available in the world of engineering and the type of challenges that they would face in the industry.   The main focus of the activity was the construction of a bridge on a new building project.  The students were put into teams and had to adopt a different engineering career role within the build.  The students enjoyed the activity and found the information useful, especially those who would consider an apprenticeship based learning pathway.
