Doncaster students develop their skills at Morgan Sindall construction site

Students from Doncaster College have benefited from first-hand experience of working on a construction site thanks to Morgan Sindall.

The construction firm invited up to 60 Construction Diploma students to Saint Sepulchre Gate West in Doncaster, where the company is creating a £6.5 million ‘super surgery’ for NHS Doncaster.

During the series of visits, the students were given a tour of the site by Morgan Sindall project manager Paul Limb and were able to take a closer look at the construction process.

“As a company, we are committed to investing in the future of the construction industry and these talented young people are the future,” says Paul. “We are always happy to do what we can to show young people that there is a vast range of opportunities out there for them if they decide to pursue a career in the industry.”

Ian Kennedy, Btec Construction Curriculum Coordinator at Doncaster College, added: “I’d like to express my personal thanks to Morgan Sindall and Paul Limb. It is always beneficial for students to gain this type of hands-on experience on a construction site.”

Morgan Sindall is building a state-of-the-art four-storey building for Doncaster Community Solutions – a public-private partnership between Community Solutions for Primary Care, NHS Doncaster, Doncaster Metropolitan Council and Community Health Partnerships.

Once complete, the triangular shaped building will offer a wider range of services for the local community.
