Construction Design Centre Visit

Prompt at ten o'clock yesterday morning, Malcolm and Rachel from the LA came as promised to take Jonathan and I to have a look at the CDC centre where the BTEC Construction course is done.

It was a lovely building with great facilities for the course.  The standard of work from previous students is outstanding, some competing in national awards.  I was excited with what I saw, and I wasn't the one doing the course.

The course is exactly what he wanted, giving him a hands on chance to try bricklaying, painting and decorating, joinery, block paving and drainage. He will also have the opportunity to go out and do on the job training, which is exactly what he wanted to do.  As he was happy with what he saw, the process begins to enrol him on the course, and we now wait for a date for the induction day.

We are also waiting for confirmation of an appointment with the college on 27th June to sort out GCSE courses.  Hopefully, that won't be too difficult to sort out either.
