Have a go day!
Berkeley Homes, working in partnership with London South East Colleges, welcomed 20 students from The Halley Academy to take part in a 'Have a Go' day!
During the course of the day, students received hands on experience of brickwork and mosaic tiling tasks at the construction skills centre in Kidbrooke Village. A team of tutors were on hand to teach them the skills and techniques required.
Kidbrooke Village is currently eight years into a 23 year project which will see just under 5,000 new homes built before 2032, with a Village Centre, revamped train station and a bounty of green space for community events and leisure activities to take place in.
The Halley Academy staff and students had a fantastic time at the centre, and gained an insight into what it takes to work in the construction industry. Students did a great job representing the academy, and we are very grateful to have new links with Berkeley Homes through London South East Colleges. We are looking forward to providing our students with more experience and opportunities in the near future.
