These boys had all expressed an interest in engineering/construction but that they did not want to stay at school. The initial feedback was very positive. A number of them expressed that they would be making their applications very soon whereas others discussed possible visits to further taster sessions/open days. I think it really opened their eyes to the options available but also the importance of English and Maths
