Construction students learn from Grow on Space
The Grow on Space is progressing well and visitors are coming along to see how the building is developing.
Recently, a party of students from New College Stamford came to the site, as part of Harborough District Council’s Open Doors Week. The students visited to complement their coursework on the construction industry.
After a tour of the site, Lecturer Ross Ward said: “I would like to thank you on behalf of the students and staff at New College Stamford for this excellent visit. The students and I found it very beneficial in supporting their learning and understanding of the construction trade by visiting an active site.
“The areas of importance that were mentioned by the students were the high level of health and safety, which highlighted their learning of the subject in the classroom, and the added information on the air recycling and solar panels; very apt at the moment as they are about to sit their environmental exam.”
Harborough Innovation Centre is owned and supported by Harborough District Council (HDC). As the building owner HDC also funds the Centre’s business support provision, providing the basis for expert business advice, mentoring and workshops.
