Computing students received “good life experience” after promoting the construction industry online.
Pupils from City College Norwich completed the challenge for the new Building Growth website for the New Anglia Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP).
The joint project will give the New Anglia LEP’s Building Growth Sector Group an up-to-date site to champion the construction and built environment sector in Norfolk and Suffolk.
Students who took part were all on the college’s Level 3 Information Technology and Computing course.
Brenden Carman, 17, from Diss, who was one of the pupils involved in the project, said: “It’s a good life experience. We know what to expect from clients now.”
Charlotte Sams, 21, from Wymondham, who also helped to create the website, said: “It was nice to learn new things and have a brief that somebody wants you to do.”
