HUW EXPLORES THE ISSUES, SWANSEA

Who better to explore young peoples’ attitude to construction than expert presenter and interviewer, Huw Edwards. Students from 5 secondary schools in the Swansea area were provided with just such an opportunity along with their teachers, to visit the prestigious SA1 Development in Swansea Bay as guests of the Welsh Development Agency, CITBConstruction-Skills and Morrison Construction.

The 90+ sixth form students pulled no punches when asking the ‘Question Time’ panel made up of members of the industry, Careers Wales, the WDA and ELWA, questions. Aspects of interest ranged from protection of the environment in the Bay area, to rates of pay, qualifications and the personal attributes to succeed in construction.

To enable the lively and expertly led debate to be extended to other students, the event was filmed - watch this space for further information in Spring 2005! back
