Work experience at Equals

July 2023

This week we have hosted two Year 10 work experience students from Langdon Academy in Newham. The girls have been involved in client and design team meetings, site visits as well as tasks to give them a flavour of what working on projects is like.

We have been very impressed with their enthusiasm and diligence, together with a youthful clarity of vision – especially around some of the ingrained challenges (‘It takes HOW long to get planning permission? People need somewhere to live NOW.’). We think it’s important to give young people visibility of roles and opportunities in the construction industry.
