The ‘good old days’ of having to travel and stand in front of an eager room of students are currently in the dim and distant past, so as is the new normal, Zoom is the lecture delivery method of choice. Altogether, there were 160 M&E installation students across the 2 campuses, some of which were watching in the workshops and others in classrooms or at home.
The format was relatively familiar. An introduction to Kier, their work and their approach to apprenticeships by Lara DaRochaFaria kicked off proceedings. Matt Breakwell took over and we saw presentations from Anthony Whittle of Kimpton (well most of it anyway) and then Greg Percival. They gave a very honest appraisal of their personal route into Mechanical and Electrical Contracting and what they’d learnt along the way.
It’s hard to judge engagement and interest in these online times, but overall, there were few technical hitches and an awful lot of real-life, honest information shared to prospective plumbers and electricians.
Thanks to Coleg Cambria and Kier and let’s hope we can get some great apprentices from the excellent work you’re doing.

The Plaza is a showpiece building for Bruntwood in Liverpool and we have since made it our own headquarters in the city. To reflect this, we needed to ensure that the fit out was of the highest quality, whilst maintaining the high levels of service our tenants expect from Bruntwood.
