So what is Facilities Management and why it is so important?
This module explores a variety of areas in the sector from heating and security to cleaning and customer services. It works as an introductory session to gauge existing awareness levels of what goes on behind the scenes to maintain buildings and facilities in premises.
This module also looks to instil confidence. On the pilot scheme, students took part in an exercise called The Definition of Clever. Each student was asked to match sentences such as ‘I went to university’, ‘I dropped out of university’and ‘I was fired’ to famous faces such as Albert Einstein and Richard Branson. Through activities like this, students were able to learn that regardless of background and education, everyone has their own ‘genius’ qualities.
The students are also introduced to sustainability, a theme that runs throughout the J.E.E.P programme and will become a key part of their final project
