An exciting Industry Day with live demos and competitions was held at our brand new £15m New City College Construction & Engineering Centre in Rainham for Plumbing students.
The day, held in conjunction with SoPHE (The Society of Public and Health Engineers) involved students studying on courses from Level 1 to Level 3 from across the NCC group at our Havering, Tower Hamlets and Epping Forest campuses.
Industry experts were on hand to guide students as they competed in competitions during the day.
Level 1 students had to demonstrate good hand skills in bending, soldering and measurement, which they have been learning in their first year of study.
Level 2 and Level 3 students had a more challenging task. They had to learn new skills during the demos which were not part of their curriculum. Techniques such as hard soldering and brazing on 55mm and 75mm copper pipe work were mastered.
