Sixth Former Maria Garvey is looking for a work placement in an architectural firm to give her some experience of the industry. Maria, who has completed the Construction in the Built Environment placement, has already completed work experience at a manufacturing and design company, but she is looking for a weekly placement as part of the IEC diploma.
She said: ‘Over the summer I worked at Carter Retail which is a refrigeration manufacturing and design company. As I had used CAD and Autodesk 3DS Max programmes on the diploma it meant I was already experienced and managed to complete the work they had allocated me for a month in just a week and a half. I had to look at existing drawings and tweak them. Ideally I am trying to find a placement with an architectural firm and I am studying Maths, Art, 3D Art and Design Technology at A Level and would like to study architecture at university.’
