Liberata’s Property Services Architectural team were in attendance at UTC Lancashire’s Open Evening this week to highlight the work it has been doing in the local area and to showcase potential career opportunities for learners. Liberata has supported UTC over the last academic year and is an active member of the college’s Employer Engagement programme. This support and guidance has proved invaluable in demonstrating the skills, behaviours and attitudes that employers require.
At the Open Evening, Natalie, Paul and Sharon from the Property Services team displayed architectural work and spoke with existing and potential learners about life post college and the opportunities available.
Sharon Livesey at Liberata, said “Over the last academic year we have built a prosperous relationship with the College. We have a big footprint in the North West region working with a number of local councils, and we strongly believe in the development of skills locally. Through working with our Property Services team, students at UTC have the opportunity to get involved in all aspects of our business.”
Natalie Sarabia-Johnston, Architectural Services Head for Liberata, was the project architect for the new UTC facility and she has personally been involved over the past 3 years. Natalie said “It’s really important to invest time to recruit new learners into the construction industry and the work at the UTC is great for students who know they want to get involved in an innovative way of learning.”
