We give pupils at Staindrop C of E Primary School a lesson in housebuilding

Pupils at Staindrop C of E Primary School have been learning about the construction industry in an interactive lesson about housebuilding. 


Giving pupils an insight into the STEM industry

Assistant Engineer Becky Noble and Management Trainee Emily Carney taught the group of 7 to 11 year olds about how homes and communities can be sustainably built, and gave them an insight into what it’s like working for a housing developer, hoping to inspire children to pursue a career in STEM from an early age.

The school, situated nearby to our
Berrymead Gardens development, also received a collection of School Engagement Packs, containing a variety of fun and educational activities created by our graduate team, as part of a UK wide initiative to inform and excite young people about the industry and to raise awareness of the possible career opportunities.

Kirsty Allen, Year 2 teacher at Staindrop C of E Primary School, said: “We are very grateful to Taylor Wimpey for taking the time to talk to our pupils. Becky and Emily were brilliant and did a fantastic job of delivering a highly engaging and interactive session on careers. The children loved finding out more about the industry, particularly with Taylor Wimpey.”
