Helping Young people to work

Suffolk Skills Show 2015

This year, Barnes Construction was again keen to support the second annual Suffolk Skills Show which took place on 21st October at Trinity Park in Ipswich and attracted over 4500 young people.. The show is the largest employer-led skills and career event in the region, aimed at 11 to 24 year olds, showcasing a wide variety of careers. Barnes Construction had a stand in the construction zone with stands covering all the major professional bodies, local colleges, main contractors, trade bodies and specialist subcontractors. Visitors to our stand enjoyed practical activities within our mock construction site and the photo shows a group of enthusiastic students completing a construction quiz designed by our team.

Endorsement

Suffolk Skills Show 2015 provided an excellent opportunity for all those who attended and got involved, with Barnes Construction bringing along an interesting mix of practical and theory-based activities to offer an insight into what the construction industry could offer them. All of the stands at the event attracted a lot of interest and judging by the comments and questions raised by the young people; the event has hopefully encouraged several to pursue a future career in the construction industry!
