The brand new Ark Blake Academy in East Croydon, set to open in September 2020, welcomed our Level 2 Electrical Installation students on Wednesday 15 January.

During the Electrical Installations course, learners expand their knowledge and skills through a combination of theory lessons and practical workshops. This trip provided our current students with an excellent opportunity to gain some vital practical experience to work in the electrical installation industry, with the guidance of the Wates Group, who are currently constructing the Academy.

The Wates Group is one of the largest family owned construction property services and development companies in the UK. The company has worked across the country, working on all types of projects including construction of hospitals, Universities and schools.

Electrical Installations Lecturer, Oliver Balay, said ‘The learners thoroughly enjoyed the detailed and insightful site experience. A special thanks to Production Management Trainee, Joshua Davis and Apprentice, Louisa Phillip for all the exciting range of electrical installations and construction work being carried out. We look forward to working with the Wates Group again!’
