Students Get a Real Experience in Prague

A group of 20 Construction students visited Czech Republic last term to undertake valuable work experience across the historic city of Prague.

Students from Carpentry and Joinery, Plastering, Painting & Decorating, Electrical, Bricklaying and Plumbing courses travelled to Prague to help renovate buildings.

They undertook some bricklaying training, helped insulate an old building and even did some work on the Prague Underground. They also went on cultural trips.

Head of School for Construction Terry Brickles said:

"This annual visit was a fantastic opportunity for our students to learn about construction trades in another country, and also to learn different techniques they can bring back to this country."

The students travelled as part of the Leonardo da Vinci European Lifelong Learning Project.
