This centre found, and funded, the placement with Amec Building; funded the curriculum project which arose, and worked with David McLean Contractors to organise site visits; and published the award-winning case-study.
The construction industry deserves the highest praise for its support for curriculum development. It has funded a national network of curriculum centres, at a cost of Pounds 3m, during the deepest recession known for generations. This deserves recognition.
Finally, can I suggest that the Christ Church project stands in its own right, without the spurious link to the James Bulger case which your reporter used as a "hook". Good quality curriculum development deserves better than tabloid treatment.
