The faculty of Construction and the Built Environment have recently been involved in a variety of practical community projects with primary schools in and around Exeter, supporting them to enhance their learner’s environments and allow our own learners the opportunity to put into practice skills learnt in college.
Steve Elwell recently took a group of Level 1 Painting and Decorating learners to Kennford Primary School to decorate an old mobile classroom used as an outdoor classroom.
Kennford and Kenton Primary schools are part of a trust utilising shared services and teaching staff from Kennford Primary, Steve Elwell and his learners moved onto Kenton Primary school to renovate the outside play area, making the area a brighter space for the children to play in.
Future community projects include Whipton Barton Primary, Woodwater Primary and Exwick Heights Primary Schools, these projects will start in September at Whipton Barton which will incorporate refurbishment of two classrooms and corridors lasting the first term. There are other community projects and work experience activities being investigated, these include the Estate Department at the Royal Devon and Exeter Hospital Wonford and Commando Training Centre Royal Marines (CTCRM).
