To highlight the exciting opportunities available to young people in the construction industry, Lovell invited school and college students to two of its London developments during National Apprenticeship Week in March.
Students from the College of North East London (CONEL) visited The Electric Quarter in Ponders End, Enfield, while 14 and 15-year olds from Year 10 at Welling School in Bexley were welcomed to Trinity Walk in Woolwich.
During each visit, the students enjoyed a tour of the site, followed by a talk about the industry and career opportunities.
Sophia Bruce, Regional Training Advisor at Lovell, comments: “We wanted to give these young people an insight into the industry and what goes on behind the scenes at a construction site. We’re passionate about construction and keen to open the eyes of young people – both boys and girls - to the rich variety of interesting careers they could pursue.”
The Electric Quarter is a new North London neighbourhood of contemporary apartments and townhouses; Trinity Walk is the first phase of the regeneration of three ageing estates, in partnership with The Royal Borough of Greenwich and PA Housing, as part of the wider regeneration of Woolwich.
Lovell currently employs around 20 apprentices across its London developments and regularly hosts visits to inspire the next generation. For information on Lovell’s apprenticeship schemes, please visit https://www.lovell.co.uk/careers/apprenticeships .
