The students are on the Step Up into Construction scheme, which is funded by ESF and CITB and delivered by York College. 

The enthusiastic students, along with their tutor Steve Scott, were shown around the project by Project Manager Gordon Fawcett, where they got the opportunity to experience a real-life construction site in operation.

Visiting a live construction site is just one of the valuable parts of the Step Up into Construction programme, which helps provide a range of support and training for individuals looking to progress into future construction careers and apprenticeships. Having the support of Robertson Construction Yorkshire & East Midlands will help Step Up into Construction to inspire and train future generations of construction talent.
