Construction learners visit a local manufacturer during 'See Your Site' week

Recently, a group of our construction learners seized the opportunity to learn first-hand about timber frame engineering at Benfield ATT in Caldicot.

The visit was organised in conjunction with the Gwent Construction Training Group during ‘See Your Site’ week, which encourages construction employers to open up their site to learners and new entrants to the industry, in a bid to raise awareness of the career paths available in the sector.

Our students were able to chat with the design team, who demonstrated the process of bringing a design brief to life.  The visit concluded with a tour around the factory, where students were able to get a closer look at the manufacturing process.

Benfield ATT were really welcoming and happy to showcase their facilities to our learners to encourage them to consider the timber trade as a great career choice.

We’d like to thank everyone at Benfield ATT Group for hosting us, along with Gwent Construction Training Group for providing the funding to allow the visit to take place.
