At Bethell we are partnering with schools and colleges to raise awareness and inspire young people to consider the Construction sector as a career choice, whilst fully supporting the delivery of the Gatsby Benchmarks.

Our offer of curriculum-based activities ensures that students can make informed choices in relation to careers and further education, supporting them to achieve their full potential. Improving the link between local schools, colleges and universities can assist with aspiring students to excel in core curriculum subjects, in order to follow a career into the Construction industry and by offering site-based learning, allows for the opportunity to experience how technical roles contribute to successful delivery of projects.

Working with school and colleges across the North West and Yorkshire regions, we are keen to support you and your students with the delivery of Gatsby Benchmarks 4, 5 and 6.
