Niblock joined forces with Construction Youth Trust (CYT) to deliver The Big Build at St Saviour’s and St Olave’s School!
Nine inspirational sessions were held over five months for a group of young ladies from Year 9. Their project task was to plan, budget, pitch and negotiate the price of materials to build a handcrafted bench for the school. The sessions were designed to have maximum impact on the student’s future career aspirations whilst gaining key skills and meeting inspirational industry professionals!

The Big Build Case Study

“I just wanted to say a huge thank you for your support with the Big Build session at St Saviour’s & St Olave’s school with my Year 9 group; the students loved it! 

It really brings the industry to life when our students meet people that actually work in construction.

This project is so important – the group, as you know, have diverse academic ability, so the support you gave, for example, during the maths-led materials costing exercise, really contributed to their confidence, and understanding, whilst doing that most precious thing of connecting school subjects to future jobs. Honestly, you were great! I appreciate you.” – Wendy Heller, Senior Construction Skills Manager
