For those who already studying or thinking about a career in construction, work experience offers you the chance to see what the day job is actually like.
It may confirm you career choice or open your eyes to options you hadn’t considered. Work experience placements are an opportunity to spend a period of time outside of the classroom learning about a particular job or area of work.
During your placement, you'll be able to find out what skills G&T and other employers look for when they're hiring someone to fill a job vacancy. You will also get the chance to develop your self-confidence and communication skills. This will help you to work better with other people in both in your continuing studies and your future career.
Having a work experience placement on your CV will also make you more appealing to future employers.
