Inspiring our future generations

Dean returned to Colchester Institute on 8th February 2024 to share with the students his invaluable knowledge and expertise gained from years of experience in the construction sector. 

The presentation covered a wide range of topics aimed at empowering the next generation of construction professionals. Students had the opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of various topics such as women in construction, career paths, toolbox talks, health and safety culture and risk assessments. 

Christopher Coe, Area Head for Wood Occupations at Colchester Institute, said: "We are immensely grateful to Taylor Wimpey for hosting the thought-provoking talk for our students during National Apprenticeship Week. The presentation was both enlightening and inspiring, it offered valuable insights into the diverse aspects of the construction industry and to see it create a spark amongst our students has been truly rewarding.”
