Key Stage 3 Construction Fridays

From September 2018, Essex Youthbuild is offering “Construction Fridays” for young people aged 11-14 in Key Stage 3. This programme is based on young people building skills and self esteem through a programme of exercises and projects. We have found through Trade School that learning new practical skills and producing something tangible with their hands can bolster young people’s view of their own abilities.

The programme is based on a term spent on one particular module:

  • Bricklaying

  • Carpentry

  • Painting

  • Wall and Floor Tiling

Once a module is complete, young people can elect to move to another skill or continue with the same discipline and develop more advanced skills.

Young people leave the course with Certificate and a portfolio of photographs of the work accomplished.
