Leicester College Construction Department: 2016-2018

Leicester College is offering structured work placements to learners studying different disciplines within the Construction department. This project builds on the success of their previous international work placement project, which offered placements to learners on their Electrician’s course.

Learners will be travelling to Seville and Lebrija, in Southern Spain, where Leicester College has built strong relationships with local building and construction firms, and our intermediary partner, Third Sector International.

Neil Mcmanus, the Construction Programme Area Manager at Leicester College, has spoken about the ‘positive impact’ he has seen amongst those who have been involved, in terms of increasing motivation, attendance, performance and punctuality and he has been blown away by the amount of interest the programme has generated amongst his learners, many of whom have never travelled or worked abroad previously.
