Oakwood Post 16 Learners are working towards a Property Maintenance Qualification with Innov8. The Learners will learn the skills that will help maintain a property in a professional environment.
These skills include door hanging, plastering, painting & decorating, small plumbing tasks, bricklaying and wallpapering. The learners have learnt the professional method to hang a new internal door and to fit a new door lock to the door too. The learners will also be shown the skills on how to problem solve in this area - we believe problem solving in Consturction is vital preparation for Learners, so that they can begin to expect what the reality of working in real properties is like.
All learners need to know how to work in a safe way making sure not to damage the door while doing so. They all had to remember the tools that would be needed and how to use them safely.
Over all, Learners from Oakwood School are starting to build a skill-set that will lead them to becoming Work and Apprenticeship ready at the end of Qualifacation.
