Pupils in the EEU and Years 10 and 11 at Muntham House have the opportunity to undertake a construction course. They have access to a specialist workshop set up to allow pupils to work in a trade skills environment to undertake tasks such plastering, decorating, bricklaying, carpentry, maintenance tasks and jobs around the school site.
Pupils undertake a range of tasks learning about the use of hand and power tools and safe working practices in the construction environment and life skills.
The pupils have complete tasks such as decking, painting and decorating, building display units and props for the school play. This gives pupils an insight to the construction environment.
Pupils can develop projects based on a business and enterprise project where they design and make items that can be sold such garden planters etc. The course has been very popular with students at the school.
