DMP welcome two
Uckfield Community Technology College Year 9’s for Work Experience
Last week DMP had the pleasure of again being the chosen placement for two Work Experience students from Uckfield Community Technology College, the former school of our Managing Partner; John Whitlock.
One candidate joined having an interest in the financial and management side of the business and the other in architectural design and surveying.
Both completed a variety of set tasks from undertaking their own Measured Survey, preparation of CAD drawings and producing financial documents and spreadsheets.
One such task involved the boys inspecting four chosen properties around Tunbridge Wells; assessing the structure, condition and materials of each one to give insight into Building Surveying.
Both students thoroughly enjoyed their placement and gave some really kind and constructive feedback.
One commented “I have always wanted to become an architect…I really enjoyed working on CAD because it enabled me to show my creativity towards the topic.”
Upon completing the week, both students got to take their own Work Portfolio home of everything they had created throughout their placement.
“I would recommend DMP for Work Experience as everyone has been really kind and supportive…they went the extra mile to make sure it was as enjoyable as possible.” (Work Experience Candidate, July 2017)
