As part of our ongoing commitment to the local communities of North Lanarkshire, our West Scotland team was delighted to make a key contribution to the 2015 business awareness programme for senior year pupils at Brannock High School near Motherwell, with a presentation and interactive workshop led by members of our regional business team from Paisley.

With several new homes developments being built across the local area, including Torrance Park in Holytown, we are keen to connect with local schools and communities on a number of levels and to play a role within the communities in which we build.

Stephen Andrew, Associate Technical Director for Taylor Wimpey West Scotland, says: “We really enjoyed having the opportunity to share our experience of the housebuilding industry as part of this year’s business awareness course at Brannock High School.  

“As well as a general overview of the house building industry and how it works, we created an interactive session for the students to take a closer look at the various disciplines within our business model and we hope this will help them to apply the theory they learn this year to the real business world.”

Jack Drummond, Commercial Director for Taylor Wimpey West Scotland, says: “I hope that our session has helped the students to develop their understanding of the wider business world and how they can play a future role in it. We’re always looking for fresh talent to join our industry and sessions like this give us the opportunity to remind students of the wealth of possibilities that are available if they consider a career in house building.”

Clive Gibb, Faculty Head for Technologies at Brannock High School, adds: “We were delighted to welcome the team from Taylor Wimpey into our school for what was a very informative session, as part of a full day of learning about the business of house building. This was a great opportunity for our students to consider how business really works and the decisions that companies like Taylor Wimpey make on a daily basis.  

“Having relationships like this with the business community helps us to keep our teaching relevant and interesting for our students, and I’d like to thank the team from Taylor Wimpey for their input.”

There’s a superb selection of three and four-bedroom homes currently available at Torrance Park.
