Croydon College and global construction consultancy company ISG have joined forces this month to put together a virtual work experience week for Construction students, giving them an opportunity to develop key skills and stand out from the crowd.

As part of the College’s World of Work programme, the Construction Virtual Work Experience Week (22-26 March) gave students invaluable insights into the industry through a range of online sessions and interactive activities using Microsoft Teams.
