Careers in Professional & Technical Construction event
‘Pupils look to build for their futures’
A group of Y10 and 12 pupils recently had the opportunity to find out more about the careers involved in the built environment industry, which many may not have considered. The day was arranged by Careers Wales and building contractors Interserve, using Coedcae School’s (Llanelli) new Science block development as the stage to get an insight into the roles and importance of such jobs as Quantity Surveyor, Site Manager and Architect. The pupils were also given an insight into the importance of conforming to Building Regulations and the role played by the Planning Consent department. The pupils enjoyed the unique opportunity to have some hands on activities, and many have a clearer understanding of the academic requirements of such positions.
