A group of young people took part in Bexley’s first “Construction Summer School” earlier this month.
The project was funded by N-gage, which aims to support young people in their progress after the age of 16.
12 teenagers from Welling School, Woodside School and Oakwood School took part, and spent the week at Construct in Crayford where they learnt practical skills including decorating, bricklaying and carpentry, while at the same time having fun and learning useful life skills.
Natalie Case from Welling School said: “I really enjoyed the course. I never thought I would like tiling, brick laying and so much more. It was fun. I would totally do it again.”
Dave Jerrom, Construct Manager, said: “It has been a pleasure introducing such an enthusiastic group of young people to construction skills and a possible career path in the future.”
