The 'Construkt' Programme Delivered by SAY & Wates

Construkty

I hope you're well! Serious About Youth (SAY) and Lendlease are delivering an exciting free initiative for sixth form students (Years 12 & 13) and unemployed young people aged 18 - 25 years old called, 'Construkt', which is an immersive in-person programme with live opportunities attached, delivered from 25th October - 5th November 2021 to give young people exposure to the wide range of great opportunities in engineering and construction. For this project we are particularly targeting Camden and Islington students and residents, and would like to encourage females to take part.

The 2-week programme will be delivered in-person adhering to appropriate Covid-19 Health & Safety measures and will take participants through the whole life cycle of a construction/engineering project to expose them to the wide range of career pathways in the sector such as project management, design/3D modelling, trade roles, admin roles etc. The programme will model and review the construction processes of the new Google Headquarters being built in Kings Cross (KGX1) and the development of 8 Bishopsgate (live Lendlease projects)During the 2-week programme participants will:

  • Engage and work with construction/engineering professionals from a range of leading industry firms (Lendlease, Laing O'Rourke and more) 
  • Undertake Building Information Modelling (BIM) digital design work
  • Deliver a tender presentation to industry professionals
  • 'Construkt' a large-scale timber structure!
  • Network with companies and professionals with opportunities 

We will be supporting participants into jobs, apprenticeships, work experience and further education opportunities after the programme and those that want to work on-site and are eligible, can obtain a free CSCS card. We have live opportunities attached to the programme, such as:

  • Support to apply for Wates' 2021/2022 apprenticeship scheme

We have helped over 75% of past 'Construkters' into positive outcomes, so if you have any young people interested in taking part, please get them to complete this online registration form by Wednesday 13th October 2021 - https://forms.office.com/r/S2fK13YpKb

If you have any questions, please contact Shekhinah Byfield (info@say-youth.org or 07310 048 262). Places are limited and in high demand, so please get in touch as soon as possible to secure a place.

We would be happy to organise a group session/assembly, virtually or in-person, with any interested young people you may have to promote 'Construkt' directly to them. I have also attached a flyer about the programme that can be distributed to any young people, contacts or friends/family you have that may be interested in the opportunity.
