College showcase event a huge success
More than 50 organisations exhibited at this year’s Foundations Live event at Bishop Burton College, which showcases the variety of roles and training available for young people contemplating a career in the construction industry. Run in conjunction with construction firm Hobson and Porter, this is the second year the event has been organised by the college. And such was the demand from exhibitors the show had to be moved to a bigger location within the college campus – this year utilising Bishop Burton’s state of the art equine centre. Stressing the importance of the event, a spokesman for the Construction Industry Training Board said more than 9,000 construction jobs would need to be filled in the Yorkshire and Humber region over the next five years.
