Balfour Beatty’s 3rd virtual work placement programme is due to start on Monday 6 September 2021 including 15 live sessions across 5 weeks running until Friday 8 October 2021, targeted at 14-18 year olds.
The new programme will include newly developed content and activities covering a different topic each week – focus for the upcoming programme will be Digital, Marketing, Environment and project specific challenges connected to our Motherwell Station Redevelopment and Edinburgh IRR projects. Pupils which complete all 5 activities will receive a Silver Industrial Cadet certificate. Approx. learning hours that will be completed by taking part in the programme is 30 hours.
Live sessions are hosted each week on a Monday (9:30am-10am), Wednesday (11am-11:30am) & Fridays (2pm-2:30pm) – everything is recorded and made available within pupils learning accounts so pupils will have an opportunity to listen to sessions at time which suits if they can’t make live sessions. All the materials will remain online beyond the final live session on 8 October so pupils can complete the programme after the live sessions have been completed.
