House Building and Construction Group Galliford Try are supporting future construction workers by providing them with information and advice about their sector.

Over several weeks, staff from the company have kindly given their time to talk to Hull Training and Adult Education learners by delivering a number of employability workshops and site visits.

The workshops have allowed the learners to discover more about the wide range of roles that are on offer in the construction industry, plus staff from the company have helped learners with their CV writing and their interview skills.

Following the sessions, Assistant Site Manager for Galliford Try, Alex Musgrave presented learners Thomas Richmond (aged 17), Callem Jewitt-Holder (aged 18) and Ryan Knaggs (aged 18) with handy tool kits.

Alex Musgrave, Assistant Site Manager for Galliford Try, said:

It’s being great to be able to help the future generations on their way into the industry. The successful three learners had excellent attitudes and should do well in the future.

Councillor Phil Webster, Portfolio Holder for Learning, Skills and Safeguarding Children, said:

Hull Training and Adult Education have a long history in delivering construction training and it is good to see that we are continuing to develop our partnerships with local employers to give young people an opportunity to learn more about this diverse sector.

Our learners have learnt a great deal from the sessions and we are very grateful to Galliford Try for investing their time in our learners and hope that this successful partnership continues so that we can help and inspire more young people to consider this sector as an employment option.
