Community

Lovell, in partnership with Repton Property Developments have pledged a long term commitment to the Wensum Trust Educational Partnership to help reduce the skills shortage and inspire young people into construction. The partnership enables the Trust to embed construction into the curriculum of its high schools, supporting teaching and school management teams to deliver work experience, site visits, apprenticeships and careers day to educate 11 to 16 year olds. Working with Acle Academy, Lovell have already extended its curriculum to include a BTech in construction and designed an improved sponsored apprenticeship programme. The partnership has exceeded Gatsby Benchmarks and Lovell are now exploring how it can expand the partnership to other schools within the Trust and beyond, having just signed an education partnership with East Coast College.
