Sheffield pupils’ lesson in a day’s work

Have your say

SCHOOLCHILDREN in Sheffield sampled a day in the life of a construction worker as part of National Apprentice Week.

Sheffield City College joined forces with businesses and training bodies for the event, which saw young people complete mock interviews with local employers.

Experts were on hand to talk the students through the day-to-day life of trainees before they got the chance to tour the Granville Road college.

Mark Frost, Sheffield College apprenticeship manager, said: “The event was a great success and we are delighted to have been involved.

“The construction industry needs to be constantly nurturing the talent of tomorrow, and we hope events such as this will give youngsters an informative introduction.”
