Home renovations give construction students ‘live’ online lessons
A Havering Colleges construction teacher is renovating his bungalow during the Coronavirus lockdown in order to give his students live and interactive lessons online.
Alan Burgess has turned his home into a construction site as he undertakes structural, flooring, roofing and plumbing work as the students, studying Construction & The Built Environment at our Rainham campus, have been watching, answering questions and offering solutions to him via laptop video links.
Alan, who is the Senior Curriculum Manager for Construction, said: “I was going to refurbish our home anyway, but I have brought it all forward so that I could give the students the chance to see work in progress while they can’t get into college. It seemed too good an opportunity to miss.
