1st year completed for sponsored students at Midlothian’s two new schools

It’s the first year down for Hardies Property & Construction Consultants two sponsored students, Kirsten O’Connor and Laura Falconer, both from Dalkeith.

The latest two young people to benefit from Hardies student support scheme, Kirsten and Laura, both students at Napier University, have been gaining vital work experience in Hardies offices in Edinburgh and Dalkeith. Of particular significance to them, coming from Dalkeith, has been their on-going work experience at the area’s two new Primary Schools at Gorebridge and Bilston, which are under construction now.

The two girls also come into Hardies offices to complete work, so that they are experiencing the office environment too and can network with other Hardies colleagues.

Hardies, which has fourteen offices throughout Scotland, has always put the support of young people in the industry at its heart. It also operates an approved RICS APC (Assessment of Professional Competence) programme which employs recent graduates and allocates them a supervisor, mentor and counsellor who supports them throughout their two year APC training period. Many graduates who originally came to Hardies through this scheme are still with the firm.
