On 24th June, our students had an interactive and insightful experience when representatives from the successful construction company Mace visited Vanguard.
Guest speakers Sean Cryan and Stuart Wallis talked about their roles, the different projects that Mace was involved in, and different jobs available in the construction industry.
Sean is a Bidding Manager at Mace (securing bids on a project site) and Stuart is an Employee Relations Manager (managing employment relations on site and ensuring people are employed fairly and safely in their jobs).
Our students also learned:
how technology has advanced to be able to support the development process of a construction project.
the different salaries based on different seniority levels and types of jobs in a construction company (apprentice, manager, director).
career options and skills required depending on the job type.
Our students, who had also previously expressed interest in the construction industry, asked lots of questions and dug deeper into careers in the construction industry and the pathways they could take.
We are grateful to our students who took part in this session and strived to learn a lot, as well as to Sean, Stuart and Mace for taking the time to visit Vanguard and share such valuable insight with us! Also, a special thank you to Olivia Wybraniec, a member of our Governing Body, for building this partnership for us.
