Galliford Try host ‘Business Breakfast’ at Penkford School
Penkford School had their first ‘Business Breakfast’ recently which took place with Tony Costello, the Social Value Engagement Manager at NWCH Framework Partner, Galliford Try.
Over breakfast, the Post 16 student social media group discussed how they would undertake their health and safety induction so that they can access Galliford Try’s building sites safely to interview workers about their various roles, responsibilities. They then produced a professional newsletter on behalf of Wargrave for Galliford Try.
Tony has made himself available one day per week so that the Penkford School team can utilise the Go Pro that Galliford Try kindly donated to kick start this initiative. As well as the GoPro, Galliford Try have donated hard hats, hi-vis jackets, and a range of other goodies.
Jaerad from Speedy Tool Hire delivered a health and safety demonstration to Post 16 students on the correct use of the cement mixer, jack hammer, compactor plate, portable generator and personal lift.
The Post 16 students are becoming more focused on developing skills that employers are looking for in the workplace and Penkford School intend to use all of the above equipment (with the appropriate training) in their future placements.
