Event description
Take a trip into manufacturing and construction with the Howells day into industry

About this Event

Howells Patent Glazing Limited have been trading in the fenestration industry for nearly 50 years and in that time have seen many changes to the systems and processes.

This coupled with the company's drive to promote manufacturing and construction to young people through working in schools offering support, coaching and mentoring, has seen them become an approved GQA qualification test centre and accredited assessors.

They developed a one day workshop for sales people and installers to help bring best practice in rooflight installations. With their involvement in schools, they have seen first hand the pressures that Gatsby benchmarks have placed on career advisers and so have looked at a way to help deliver some of these through a short half day interaction. The day should address the following benchmarks:

1. Learning from labour market information

2. Linking curriculum learning to careers

3. Encounters with employers and employees

4. Experiences of workplaces

The students from year 10 onwards will experience a real local working manufacturing plant. Receive a certificate of attendance to be used for CPD evidence. Gain an understanding into the problems and solutions of the rooflight industry and get real hands on experience of assembling a rooflighting product.

Full Health and Safety PPE gear will be provided on the day. Risk assessment and insurance details will be provided ahead of the visit.

The maximum number for each visit is 8, to ensure quality and individual attention at all times. Refreshments will be provided and it is up to the person booking to mention any dietary requirements ahead of the visit.

The charge for this event is a one off £160.00 inc VAT in total for up to 8 people at any one time.
