The course is not classroom based and over the course of the three days the young people will engage in an array of experiential, outdoor activities helping them to:

  • Feel motivated and empowered
  • Develop their confidence, communication and team building skills
  • Benefit from mentoring from a WDI employee
  • Gain an insight into the variety of careers in construction
  • Hands-on practical experience of construction
  • The opportunity to access work experience / apprenticeship opportunities upon completion of the course


The course is a great opportunity for all young people regardless of their circumstances, background and location all expenses (travel, food and accommodation) are covered by Willmott Dixon. Young people will be accompanied on the journey by WDI employees so will not need to make the journey alone.
