Seymour Civil Engineering spent a day at High Tunstall College in Hartlepool with 80 students giving them an insight into civil engineering. The students took part in the ICE “Build a Bridge” project where the students build a 15 meter long suspension bridge, the project promotes team building, identifies the variety of roles within the industry and the importance of Health & Safety.
Upon completion of the bridge construction, the students got to test their hard work and see if they were up to the Seymour Standard as they walked across their finished structure.
To give the students a real feel for the career they could have in the industry, Seymour brought along their very own ex High Tunstall student, who is now well on his way to becoming a Site Manager at Seymour CEC. Will Wood joined Seymour as an apprentice in 2012 and is progressing up the career ladder. Will gave the students an insight into the career routes available as well as his own career journey at Seymour CEC.
