Students from across the Technology faculty at Reading College are already benefitting from the new partnership with BW: Workplace Experts by taking part in a site visit.
BW specialises in fitting out and refurbishing workplaces to high-spec briefs and have worked with industry-leading clients such as Selfridges. Technology faculty students studying construction trades and engineering were the first to visit a BW client site that is currently undergoing a radical transformation.
The students were briefed by security and health and safety, which gave them a strong understanding of the importance of adhering to procedures and professionalism whilst on a live site. The team from BW gave the students a guided tour, followed by a question and answer session that allowed them to find out more about the project and what it is like to work for BW.
Kellie Davis, Faculty Manager, said: “The students were very impressed with their site visit and are looking forward to engaging with BW on a project in preparation for the next visit to site. BW are also keen to come and visit our students at Reading College. We are all very much looking forward to all of the fantastic opportunities that working BW will bring for our staff and students.”
