As part of the Wembley Park community and skill programme, we have partnered with a number of schools in the Brent area to build long-lasting relationships. We want to engage young people with Wembley Park and the development from start to finish.
The programme also creates awareness of the many careers within the construction industry through three key activities:
Site tours: These are a great way for children to understand what a construction site looks like.
Activity days: These are run in schools in partnership with Young Enterprise. This programme allows children to understand how the communities are built in which they live and grow.
Refurbishment projects: As part of the programme, work is being carried out in a number of schools to improve their facilities. For example the Ark Academy in Wembley is benefiting from a playground makeover, which is being undertaken by Quintain and their key contractors.
