Open Doors Week
Open Doors week 18-22 March gives Plymouth schools the opportunity to look behind construction sites across Plymouth. The aim of the project is to inspire young people to consider careers in the building industry. The city has ambitious plans to grow the population and there are many long term jobs available for those with the right skills. Year 10 students had the opportunity to visit Sherford site where 5,500 new homes are planned and the Maclaren Imax cinema and entertainment complex.
The students were impressed with the variety of jobs and trades that it takes to build a house (32 last count) and enjoyed their chance to look behind the hoardings to see the huge Imax cinema being put up in the city.
The students were a credit to the school and they asked some great questions. All of them went away with a better understanding of the opportunities available to them.
