3 Day Civil & Construction Work Experience for A-Level Students

This week we welcomed A-Level students for 3 days of hand-on learning and experience at GEDA.

The students came from a mixture of schools across the North and are considering either construction or civil engineering as a career.

“The past three days of work experience with GEDA has given me such a great insight into the working world of civil engineering and construction. It was such a great experience – learning and talking to the different workers and how they all together. Thank you GEDA.” – Josefina, St Patrick’s College, Dungannon

Here’s what they got up to during their time with us:

Day 1: An overview of the different roles and department – from HR and Bids to Quantity Surveyors and Contracts Managers. This included talks from department heads and demonstrations in flying a drone and using a CAT & Genny

Day 2: Official CSR training course and certification delivered by Grainne from Industry Training Services

Day 3: Site tours of both our Knock Road construction site for Radius Housing and our Ravenhill Flood Alleviation Scheme for client NI Water

We have a number of student, apprentice and graduate opportunities available across our sites in the UK and Ireland over at our website, check them out here.
