Construkt Programme delivered by SAY, Enable & Wates

Serious About Youth (SAY), Enable and Wates are delivering an exciting free in-person initiative for sixth form students (Years 12 & 13) and unemployed young people aged 18 – 25 years old called, ‘Construkt’, which is an immersive programme with live opportunities attached, delivered during the February half term from 12th – 16th February 2024 at Croydon College to give young people exposure to the wide range of great opportunities in engineering and construction.
We would particularly like to encourage females to take part. The closing date for registrations is Monday 29th January 2024 at 5pm. 

The programme will take participants through the whole life cycle of a construction/engineering project to expose them to the wide range of career pathways in the sector such as project management, design/3D modelling, trade roles, admin roles etc. During the programme participants will:

  • Engage and work with construction/engineering professionals from a range of leading industry firms (Enbable, Wates, Laing O’Rourke and more)
  • Do a live site visit
  • Undertake Building Information Modelling (BIM) digital design work
  • Deliver a tender presentation to industry professionals
  • Undertake hands-on work to ‘construkt’ a large-scale timber structure!
  • Take part in a networking and presentation evening with companies and professionals with opportunities

Travel and lunch will be covered for participants during the programme, and we will be supporting participants into jobs, apprenticeships, work experience and further education opportunities after the programme.
