Cheriton Bishop Primary School site visit

Classic Builders Business Development Manager (Lewis Tolputt) recently visited Helston School pupils to give an introduction to construction talk and explain the different opportunities available to school leavers looking for a career in construction. Based on the popular ‘I Love My Job’ format, the talk centred on the different industry avenues, the careers within each sector and the prospects those entering the industry can explore.

The pupils thoroughly enjoyed the talk and had numerous questions about future careers, appropriate subject choices and key personal qualities required to excel in the construction industry. Lewis Tolputt of Classic Builders had this to say –

Each of the pupils showed a great level of interest in learning more about construction and the prospects open to those considering a career within the industry. It was nice to see the students defying the common misconception of careers in construction being solely based on site. Students discussed roles in design, contract administration and management. We would like to thank Helston School for inviting Classic Builders to share its knowledge of the sector with its students.”

Classic Builders employ two trained and certified CITB Construction Ambassadors who frequently engage with local places of education to give guidance and advice on careers in construction.
