We are always looking to extend our students’ knowledge and understanding of workplaces to prepare themselves for future employment. In March 2018 our Sixth Formers were taken on a visit to the new R G Carter site in Attleborough. Students had the wonderful opportunity to extend their understanding of the workplace itself and the extensive range of potential job roles available in the construction industry. Over the last two years the Sixth Form at the academy has benefitted greatly from the links built up with this company: their staff have run team building workshops and presented assemblies about apprenticeships and construction industry roles.
The Year 12 and Year 13 students, accompanied by Mr Jeffs, Mr Reavey, Miss Rourke, and Mrs McConnell were warmly welcomed by the R G Carters staff, who had prepared informative presentations and a tour of the site to explore the different aspects of the design and build work carried out on this new site.
