Multi-trade students given a glimpse of the construction industry

Leading housebuilder Westleigh Homes has given a talk to construction students from a local college and invited them for a tour of its St Mary’s Park development in Leicester to provide an insight into work in the industry.

A total of 35 Level 3 Built Environment learners, followed by a group of Levels 1, 2 and 3 Bricklaying, Plastering, and Carpentry and Joinery pupils from Leicester College, were given a presentation by Mark Dixon, the Senior Site Manager who oversees work on the collection of two, three and four-bedroom homes close to the city’s thriving centre.
