Seddons site visit

Reaseheath Plasterers gain industry insight

Reaseheath plasterers have been gaining industry tips and experience during their latest site visit thanks to Perkins Plasterers of Stoke-on-Trent.

Students watch as a wall is being plasteredPerkins Plasterers invited students to visit one of their larger projects, an 80 apartment retirement village site. During the visit, students had the opportunity to see a range of skills and attributes plasterers require for success within the modern construction industry.

All of our plasterers sat through a thorough site induction, which was excellent, as it helped to bring aspects of their health and safety theory module to life.

Due to size of the site, students were able to see apartments at a variety of different construction stages. They were treated to demonstrations of a range of different plastering practices and techniques including floor screeding, metal partitioning, plasterboarding and skimming walls and ceilings.

Students take notesStudents also had chance to ask lots of questions, of which they had plenty – in particular for the plasterers of course!

We were also fortunate enough to welcome Perkins Plasterers to our recent construction careers event, held on campus. Members of the Perkins’ team kindly joined other industry representatives, former students and the construction team to discuss construction courses and careers with our visitors.

Joining GB Projects Together for Student Visits

By The GB Group 

GB are currently on site at Reaseheath College in Cheshire and are working with the College to maximise opportunities for the students.

GB GroupFor two consecutive Fridays we arranged for students from Reaseheath to visit our other project in Cheshire, Kings Leadership Academy. The first visit consisted of students studying Level 2 Diploma Bricklaying and the second visit were Level 1 Diploma Carpentry and Joinery.

The students were given a overview of the project, shown drawings and then taken out on site for a full tour. The students found it very interesting and provided quotes below.

GB Group 1Connor Ayres – Level 2 Diploma Bricklaying said “I really enjoyed the day at site, it was good to see what it is actually like on a real building site. I appreciated your time and for showing us around. I hope it is goes to schedule and thank your for the gloves they are great. Everybody had a good time and I hope we can come again”

Tyler Young – Level 1 Diploma Carpentry and Joinery said “It was good to see a big site and how it works. The talk was good and we got to see what sort of joinery jobs would be being done later in the job. I hope that we can see more of the sites, to have one on the college is brilliant as we can go down when we want”
