Robert Headley from Carey’s Civil Engineering and Amarh discuss the benefits of The Inspiration Programme for young people:
Robert: “Careys has got involved with Action4Youth to try and get young individuals to have better knowledge of what the construction industry actually involves, and what its like to work for a big company doing house building or civil engineering.”
Robert: “Careys is changing by reaching out to these local communities, getting involved, setting up Inspiration Programmes to get young students and individuals involved more in the industry.”
Robert: “It’s about broadening horizons for young people, whereas before they didn’t really have much opportunity and people might not know what is out there. We think its a great programme running to get young people interested, just so they know a bit about it.”
Amarh: “It was quite engaging when I went to the site. I was thinking at first we would just be put in a room and have it explained to us, but they took us all the way around the site, showed us the different stages of development that they had their buildings in.”
Robert: “Careys and Action4Youth’s message is very similar as we both believe in creating opportunity for young people and equal opportunities for everyone.”
What is The Inspiration Programme?
The Inspiration Programme is an Action4Youth initiative delivered in schools and colleges across Buckinghamshire with students in year groups, from year 10 to year 13. It broadens the horizons, thinking and experience of young people.
It fills gaps in existing provision by creating opportunities for young people, providing unique and unprecedented access to Business, Police and Criminal Justice, Health & Wellbeing, Arts & Culture, and Community & Environment
The programme supports young people to have greater belief in their own abilities by becoming more skilled problem-solvers, better team-workers and stronger communicators.
