Launched in 2017, SonS is a CWIC initiative designed to provide engaging ‘live, on-site’ learning opportunities for students of all ages to support classroom teaching.


  • Provide students with opportunities to develop skills on site
  • Provide Q&A opportunities with contractors about the work they do
  • Introduce industry to the construction workforce of the future and build relationships
  • Develop sites as learning zones
