The Manchester College hosts Construction Trade Fair
The Manchester College recently held a Construction Trade Fair at its Openshaw Campus, to give students the chance to network with a range of employers.
Construction and Engineering students met with 13 different organisations within the industry, including a host of large construction firms in the local area:
- Morgan Sindall
- Wirquin Group
- Roxor Group
- Graham Plumbing
- Working Wear UK
- Flannery Plant Hire
- Machine Mart
Taking advantages of the industry-standard facilities at the College’s Industry Excellence Academy for Construction and Engineering, the students took part in live demonstrations and masterclasses, as well as a digital learning zone with a digger simulator.
They also had the chance to receive trade discount cards and enter prize draws.
Ayub Moosa, The Manchester College’s Assistant Principal for Automotive, Construction, Engineering and Logistics, said: “I’d like to thank all the employers who attended for making this trade fair such a fantastic event.
Our students were able to explore different career opportunities and make invaluable contacts, which will help them on their journey into industry.
