We are really proud with our links with BUILD Construction Skills Academy. BUILD are an accredited, Leeds based training provider specialising in delivering a wide array of specialist qualifications and skills.
They welcome all learners including those that are NEET (Not in Education, Employment or Training) and may have lost their way in life. At Parklands we love giving opportunities to people who deserve a chance.
They pride themselves on –
encouraging independent learning by using a variety of teaching methods
creating a supportive environment
nurturing constructive relationships with external stakeholders
academic learning through practical projects and extracurricular activities
building good links with employers, and multi agencies
offering flexible learning programmes over flexible times scales
Build have now delivered two painting and decorating projects at our school which benefits everyone! Parklands gets a makeover with a vibrant, new-look Gym and Assembly hall at a fraction of the price of a professional job. ‘Build’ gets a valuable opportunity for students to improve their skill sets and gain real life work experience for their CV.
It really is a win-win.
Thank you Build!
