Buxton have a long and successful list of projects and experience working with schools in London and the South East to improve the facilities and well-being of the staff and students.
Over the last couple of weeks, Buxton have attended Career Days at two of our current projects, Acland Burghley School in Tufnell Park, and Benenden School in Kent. As a business, Buxton understand the importance of inspiring the next generation of Quantity Surveyor’s and Site Managers, and see these events as a great opportunity to send representatives to talk to the students who one day, may start a career in construction.
Buxton also have a successful Apprenticeship Scheme which gives young people the opportunity to start their professional career in the construction industry.
In September 2018, Bradley, now a fully qualified Quantity Surveyor, graduated with an RICS accredited degree in Quantity Surveying having gone through the Buxton apprenticeship scheme, he returned to Acland Burghley and has this to say:
“I really enjoyed going back to Acland Burghley where I helped carry out the replacement of electrical and mechanical services, along with general refurbishment works of the school. The aim of attending the careers day is to help the students understand what is available once they leave school and how Buxton play a role in providing opportunities. I really hope that talking to the students at the Careers Day about my experience and how I got into the industry, helps them in making decisions about what they want to do after school and college, whether it be further education or getting onto an apprenticeship scheme, and working while they study.
To end two years of studying at Kingston and completing his final piece of coursework, Bradley and 30 other students headed to Dubai to see what construction is like in the World’s most rapidly growing city.
