Construction Students visit Midas Head Office

On Wednesday, 15th May some Year 9 students, who are beginning their Construction Course in September visited the Head Office of Midas (who incidentally are constructing our new building at Borough Road) to discover more about the construction industry.

They were given informational talks from various members of their team, including an ex-apprentice who is now an Assistant Quantity Surveyor, Education Events Co-ordinator, a Director and a Site Manager.  Talks included what different personnel did on a daily basis, what qualifications they obtained and their career path.

The students were given information on Apprenticeships, from Level 2 Apprenticeships through to Degree Apprenticeships.  Further Education routes were also discussed.  The students were very interested in the salaries they could earn when they had finished their education!

There was plenty of time for our students to ask as many questions as they wanted and this session was very much enjoyed by all that took part.

Midas are also working with our Year 10 students giving them interview tips and experience.
