Secondary 14-19 Vocational - Construction Trades

Description

This programme features KS4 students enrolled in NVQ level 1 courses at an adult learning centre in Nuneaton. They spend time working on a Lovell building site, gaining hands-on experience alongside experienced tradespeople.

Warwickshire's education department is a DfES 14-19 Pathfinder tasked with promoting and improving collaboration between schools, FE colleges and training providers. Their schools offer work-based learning opportunities to students of all abilities at KS4, providing every student with an opportunity to spend one day per week in the world of work. Students on this KS4 course have the opportunity to graduate to the academy or to FE courses at North Warwickshire and Hinckley College.

Key points:

 

  • A lack of positive role models at home can be countered by bringing pupils to a work site
  • Working in the community fosters a sense of ownership
  • Theoretical classroom work must correspond well to the practical aspects of lessons to maintain pupil interest
