Construction Taster Session at WDH Training Centre

This week, six of our Y9 girls took part in a Construction Taster Session at the WDH Training Centre in Normanton. After pulling on their overalls, gloves and goggles, the girls got their hands (but not their uniforms!) dirty by getting to grips with the basics of tiling, sealing and piecing together their own plumbing system.   

Each of the girls had put themselves forward for the Taster, showing an interest in Construction as a Career. By the end of the session, they not only knew what each square meter of tiling was worth in earnings, but also that there were hundreds of different Careers within this sector.

Castleford Academy would like to thank the staff at the WDH Training Centre for this opportunity and hope to bring more students to the Taster Session in the future.
