Henry Brothers are the official sponsors of the Rainey Endowed’s Construction and Built Environment GCSE. We held a site visit to our Desertcreat site followed by a ‘Give it a Go’ session for Year 11 and Year 12 GCSE pupils on 20th and 22nd of November to aid them in their skills and knowledge of the construction industry.
In the morning the pupils toured the Northern Ireland Fire & Rescue Service’s Learning and Development Centre Site. After Dominos pizza for lunch the pupils got the opportunity to try bricklaying, plastering, tiling and joinery with some of our skilled tradesmen. They also had the opportunity to view a project through the Virtual Reality headset device, helping them to gain an understanding of how technology is being integrated into construction processes.
We are delighted to inspire and support these young people to consider roles in the construction industry.
