SPV were delighted to welcome back Building Futures students in June 2020 in line with our COVID risk assessments. Our Building Futures students have been engaging virtually throughout Covid and have remained on programme to finish the course.
It has been lovely to hear how the course has helped students Mental Health during Covid-19 and many commented that the constant online engagement with their Tutor has kept them focused during lockdown.
Having missed the practical element of the course considerably during Covid- they are now working 4 days a week at SPV to make up the practical elements and learn all of the different areas of roofing.
This week they have tried slating for the first time with our trainer extraordinaire Martin Lawrence.A number of the students have engaged extremely well in this area with the impetus to progress this further into an apprenticeship.
Disappointingly, they have not had the opportunity of manufacturer visits, talks and training which all add so much value to the Course, but despite this the Students are all still engaged, on target to complete and progress into the Industry. All were complete beginners and are already showcasing excellent workmanship as future Roofers!
