Give Construction a Try

Leeds City Academy 'Give Construction a Try'

Wednesday 20th March 2019 saw Leeds City Academy Year 8 & 9 Pathways students visit Wakefield College, Castleford Campus for the ‘Give Construction a Try’ event hosted in partnership with Keepmoat Homes and the Construction Industry Training Board.

Every student took part in a number of interactive workshops focussed on the Construction Industry; Electrical, Plastering, Brickwork, Joinery, Painting & Decorating, Maintaining Heavy Plant Equipment and Clay Moulding.  Students were able to experiment with their skills, increase their knowledge, awareness and investigate roles and responsibilities within the sector.   

This event was an exceptional educational experience for our students and one that has left an irrefutable impression on both the girls and boys in attendance.  

We would like to thank Wakefield College for organising such an incredible event and for inviting our students to attend.
