Sandwell Academy Work Experience 2016 / 17

Startright Training Ltd were asked to develop a work experience programme to provide to Sandwell Academy students during this academic year 2016 / 17.

It was agreed for us to accept three waves of students over a six month period. Each group of students to attend Startright for one day a week for approximately six weeks and participate in various construction activities, Tiling, Bricklaying, Painting, Plaster boarding, Carpentry etc.

All three groups of Sandwell Academy students put their heart and soul into their work and seemed to enjoy the whole experience. They were a credit to their school throughout and we at Startright thoroughly enjoyed teaching each group of students.

Each young man has taken away some new skills and knowledge and we hope the process has also provided them with a small insight into the construction sector and potential careers for them to research.

We feel the work experience programme has been a resounding success, it worked very well indeed. Each Student also received Certificates of Achievement for completing their work experience programme with us and these have been sent to School along with photographic evidence of their work accomplished while at Statright.

We wish all of the Students we have had the pleasure to have on board with us over the previous few months, best wishes for their future. We also very much look forward to working with Sandwell Academy next academic year and thank them for their continued support.
