Oakwood School, Year 11 Students are working towards a Lv2 in Construction with Innov8.
Students will learn the skills that will help maintain a property. These skills include door hanging, plastering, painting & decorating, small plumbing tasks, bricklaying, wallpapering. The year 11 learners have been working towards a bricklaying task this involved being able to level the bricks and then construct a half brick stretcher bond wall with a return. The learners had to then mix their own material making sure they had enough for the work they had to do. These skills might seem basic, but they are vital to ensure that adecquate planning takes place. There's nothing worse than arriving to a job without enough materials. It's can be expensive and time consuming to leave a job to collect more materials!
