Students looking for a career in the construction industry have been given the chance to ‘build a better future’ thanks to a pioneering new alliance.
The partnership between Northampton College, The University of Northampton and a host of companies working on the new Waterside campus project will see students given the opportunity to spend time working on the development and transferring the skills they learn in the classroom into a ‘real-world’ setting.
More than 50 electrical engineering students will be involved in the year-long scheme, each spending a week working on-site with specialist contractors such as Bowmer & Kirkland and Derry Building Services.
Prospective students and their parents will be given the chance to ‘have-a-go’ at Skills Fest 2017 – an open event showcasing the courses on offer at Northampton College.
A range of hands-on workshops, featuring everything from beauty tips and cupcake design to fixing cars and animating video games, will be available during the event on Saturday, March 11.
The workshops will give anyone interested in studying at Northampton College the opportunity to find out more about specific courses, meet the teachers and familiarize themselves with the facilities. Parents will also have the chance to come along and learn more about all aspects of college life.
