Recently Cirencester College T-level Construction students were visited by Bill Burford, who is the Academic Subject Lead for Architecture, Construction & Environment at the University of Gloucestershire.
Bill watched a presentation delivered by a group of Year One students, in which they talked about their experience on the T-level so far. They outlined the different projects they’ve been working on, and how the specialist industry software available at College has aided them in completing their work.
At the end of the presentation, the students answered any questions Bill had about the course. He was particularly interested in the work experience placements the students are currently undertaking at various construction sites and architectural firms.
Bill talked to the students about pathways they could go down after College, and the Architecture, Planning and Surveying courses available at the University of Gloucestershire. He also provided an insight into different career opportunities in the Construction industry, and how construction is so important in the challenges we face due to climate change and depleting resources.
The students are looking forward to their upcoming trip to the University of Gloucestershire, where they will be spending a day completing design workshops with university students. This will be fantastic opportunity for the students to get a flavour of studying Construction at degree level, should they go down the University route.
Construction lecturer Chris Lythgoe said “Bill gave an inspirational and interesting talk, and told the students that they had made a good decision to do the T-level, because both universities and employers value the essential “soft skills” developed on the course”
