Eric Wright Group Deliver Construction Lecture

Preston’s College construction learners recently enjoyed a guest lecture from Eric Wright Group’s Operation Director, John Hartnett.

Delivered to Level 1, 2 and 3 students in the state-of-the-art iSTEM Centre, the talk focused on the wide range of career opportunities in the construction industry.

Preston’s College has been in partnership with the Eric Wright Learning Foundation since November 2015, aiming to provide first class facilities for young people by replicating a live construction site featuring mini buildings or ‘pods’ with low-level scaffolding to represent the various stages of construction.

Eric Wright Group is an award-winning leader in the UK property and construction industry, demonstrating a culture of excellence in civil engineering, construction, property development, property management, facilities management and health care.

Mark Taylor, Head of Construction & the Built Environment at Preston’s College, said “Providing learners with industry lectures is a key enrichment activity to help students understand more about the industry they aspire to work in.  The local infrastructure improvement that have come thanks to the City Deal means Lancashire needs access to skilled workers more than ever before and it’s our mission to ensure we help to bridge the skills gap”.
