Jehu recently opened our doors to local students from Neath Port Talbot College (NPTC) to view the construction of a care home in Caewern.
We are building the 60 bed care home for Grwp Gwalia as part of their partnership with Neath Port Talbot Council to improve residential care services within the county.
As part of our community benefits programme, links have been made with the construction department at NPTC to provide support for the students learning and development.
Bernie Mark, Corporate Social Responsibility & Training Coordinator was pleased to welcome the students to site. She said: “We are delighted to see local construction students visiting our site, particularly in view of the College’s proximity to the project and are keen to develop an on going link with the department. Our community benefits programme has involved Jehu taking on local contractors and local people for this project and this visit is a further extension of our efforts to work with the community in Neath.”
During the visit, the students, accompanied by department staff, listened to a talk about the project and the company, heard from one of our management trainees, had a site tour from Site Manager Glyn Rees and were given information packs to take away.
Bryan Shenton, deputy head of the construction department said, “This was an excellent opportunity for the students to view and explore the site with the knowledge and experience of the site staff. We hope to continue to develop links with the company.”
