Some of our pupils in Year 10 attended a workplace visit at GMI Construction in Birmingham City Centre on Tuesday 11th July 2023. Pupils were exposed to real industry insight and what it takes to build the necessary employability skills that will equip them for future success. They spoke to a range of professionals in the organisation, from the Responsible Business Partner, Project Manager and some current apprentices at the organisation and found out about their individual experiences which gave pupils further insight to what a future in this organisation could be like for themselves. Pupils learnt about routes into construction and the wide range of roles like, architecture, bid manager, civil engineer, commercial manager, building control surveyor, project manager, construction director, electrical project manager, quantity surveyor and many more that they could pursue as a future career. We were fortunate to go on a site tour of the company’s latest project which was a thirty-five million development of prestigious apartments. This event will support their next steps in life with their career decision making.
