A group of students at Leeds College of Building (@WeAre_LCB) has made an unlikely connection with care-home residents after becoming recent pen pals. The students, studying GCSE English alongside vocational construction trade programmes, took part in a pilot scheme with two care homes in the community, Priestley Care Home in Birstall and Sure Care North Leeds.
The Faculty of Construction Crafts at Leeds College of Building (@WeAre_LCB) recently held its first-ever Institute of Carpenters (IOC) City Hub Event. The virtual session exposed students to the varied career opportunities available to qualified carpenters and joiners.
A @WeAre_LCB apprentice was recently selected as an outstanding candidate to represent employer BAM Nuttall (@BAMNuttall) in a crucial online consultation. Second-year Civil Engineering apprentice, India Penny, spoke to Baroness Berridge (Minister for Women & Equalities) @BaronessEB and representatives of the Women’s Business Council following BAM Construct and BAM Nuttall’s work on ‘Flexible Working Pioneers.’
