Heritage England engage with Level 1 Bricklaying Students
Heritage England engaged with Level 1 Bricklaying students from Castleford College with their works in Wakefield City Centre. Visiting the Nocturno and Elephant and Castle restoration project, the students received a health and safety talk to embed the health and safety training they had received in college; and then were able to take part in a scaffold tour around the project to look at the use of terracotta and repairs being carried out.
The students acknowledged that this engagement with English Heritage widens their understanding of job roles in the market and the diversity of work in the sector that their skills can be applied to.
