Fourfront Group invites Construction Youth Trust to their Dover Street site

Construction Youth Trust Budding Builders students recently visited a live site in London’s West End hosted by Fourfront Group.

They were kind enough to give seven of our young people an opportunity to receive a tour of the construction site and a chance to talk to members of their experienced project team about their role in the industry and how they got into their chosen career field.

The group enjoyed hearing about the project from where it began, to the stage it was currently in, to where the project will finish. The group also discussed different health and safety aspects about working in construction and spoke about their own ambitions within the industry.

The students took a tour of the site, allowing them to be able to see different trades in action on an active site which was an incredibly valuable experience to the students, many of whom had never set foot on a site before. The staff from Fourfront Group gave a fantastic insight into what the students can expect from being on site.

The seven students who participated will soon complete their Level 1 Health and Safety award, and are working towards their CSCS cards. They are all keen to progress within the industry and gained valuable experience from being on site.

Saygin, one of the students who took part, said, “The visit to the site was great and the people were really down to earth. They were kind enough to show us around and give us an insight into their careers in construction, which was really helpful to all of us”.

Construction Youth Trust would like to thank Fourfront Group for their hospitality and taking the time out of their busy schedules to give our students such a fantastic tour.

We are running the Budding Builders course on a regular basis and welcome young people from all London boroughs who are currently looking to gain a CSCS card, and find employment or training.
