The JCB Academy Sixth Form have recently welcomed St Modwen as a new T-level challenge partner. Learners studying the T-level Engineering and Manufacture qualification will gain an understanding of business terminology, structures and responsibilities from a range of perspectives in project management, commercial, technical and sale & marketing. This 6-week project focusses on project management and is delivered in teams and candidates. Each team has to recruit a candidate through the interview process and using job description supplied by St Modwen. Teams were given a brief to develop a green field site, based on the current St Modwen’s Blythe Bridge development, and will present their proposal to staff at St Modwen. Typical constraints will feature and impede progress, meaning teams will need to overcome these problems. St Modwen are providing access to real projects, resources and their methodology to simulate the challenges that they face as an organisation.
“St Modwen’s commitment to our learners is invaluable, as they offer a project launch, technical input, a site visit, project review and then judgement of outcomes through a presentation from the teams.” Mr Burnett, Engineering Team at The JCB Academy Sixth Form.
