Worlds of Opportunity Looking behind the hard hats.... 28th November 2017 

With the spotlight on Slough’s regeneration programme, construction employers have joined forces with Learning to Work to give an insight for those considering their career paths or for those keen to retrain in a booming industry. The event will raise awareness of the diverse career opportunities that exist within the construction sector from design, planning and commercial, through to building and interior finishing. Attendees will hear first-hand from a range of industry experts, participate in hands on workshops and have the chance to meet and talk to people from a wide variety of roles.
