Brings the world of work alive in your classroom

Like many industries, there are widespread misconceptions about what’s involved and the people who work in it.

We asked two students to question a range of young people who are working in the construction industry to try to work out what their jobs were. It’s challenging – and it’s fun. But the serious message is about busting myths and stereotypes.

Jobs include: Crane operator, electrician, project manager, environmental sustainability assistant and trainee quantity surveyor.
