Building Bridges
From the moment they arrived, the students were putting their problem solving and teamwork skills into action. First of all by gathering as much information as they could about their hosts and the volunteers who were joining them for the day and then further as they explored the workplace through a tour. Then, in teams, the students were set their challenge, to design a new bridge for the fictional town of Bogsby. They set about researching possible locations, considering community concerns and building a scale model of their proposed scheme. After all this, they took their proposal to a panel of volunteers representing a planning committee, who scrutinised not only their design but also how effectively they had used their Essential Skills across the day.
We worked well as a team as we all made sure we acted in a fair way. Everybody had a job so nobody felt left out and we built a great model!
Student, Year 4
These days are so important for students of all ages to take part in to show them what the world of work looks like. It's been really fun working with them throughout the day.

It's been a brilliant day and the students have really enjoyed themselves and had a chance to work on the skills.
