PUPILS have been learning more about a career in the construction industry.

Students at Miltoncross School in Portsmouth have benefitted from the expertise of leading housebuilder Barratt. Students were able to speak to representatives from local colleges and businesses.

They took part in mock interviews, as well as receiving guidance on writing CVs.

They spoke to visitors and talked about options for apprenticeships, going into work or continuing their education.

Anthony Dimmick, community liaison manager for Barratt, said: ‘This is an important time for young people where they have to make some big decisions about their futures.

‘I was delighted to be invited to Milton Cross School and to have been able to support young people in the area where we are building new homes and communities.’

The annual event was open to all pupils in Year 11, but this year Year 9 pupils were also invited, to help them choose their options for GCSEs.
