Northgate High School to Visit Eastern Roof Training

On the 19th March, we will be hosting 10 students from Northgate High School for a taster day into Roofing.

The students, aged between 14-16 will attend our training centre for 1 day and will likely never have had the opportunity to have a go at Roofing before. During the day, they will gain a feel of what being a Roofer and a Roofing Apprentice is like. Each student will have the opportunity to have a practice on our Pitched Roofing rigs carrying out tasks like measuring, installing felt, cutting batten and even laying a few tiles and slates.

The idea of the scheme, funded by CITB, is to give students about to leave school the chance to gain an insight into what it is to be a Roofer, something that they usually would not have the chance to experience. We hope that by continuing to carry out these taster days for local-schools, we will be encouraging the next generation of Roofers into the industry.

If you work for a school and would like us to carry out something similar for your students, please get in touch with us on 01473 744412.
