Virtual Work Experience with Top Firms
Last term, students in Years 10, 11 and 12 successfully completed virtual work experience with top international firms Santander, BP and Hochtief Murphy.
One student said: “On my work experience with construction company Hochtief Murphy, I learnt about the three pillars of sustainability - environmental, social, and economic - and the importance of them in construction, as well as teamwork and problem solving skills.”
Students had to complete a competitive application process in order to gain placements with these prestigious companies and should feel very proud of their achievements. Well done to Miqdaam, Muhammad, Elyeon, Firdaos, Shahriyar, Abdul, Zion, Abid, Daniel, Syed and Crown.
What students said...
"I enjoyed learning about different roles of people in the construction and engineering industry. For example, the environmental specialist who works on reducing the environmental impact and sustainability when constructing new building by using recycled materials or installing noise insulation on construction sites, to avoid disturbing the locals."
"It really tested my confidence and collaborative skill, which are all skills I will need to master for my years ahead."
"I love creating projects and being able to admire the work I have completed. Moreover, I love planning complex projects and working through the challenges I may encounter."
