The construction of the Fife College Levenmouth Campus presented numerous opportunities for the delivery of educational experience including career days for the college students, practical interview experience and practical work experience. Additionally, a college student’s artwork was displayed on the site hoarding and the production of a short film was created by the students on the choosing of subjects. A specially designed time capsule, made by high school pupils studying at Fife College, was also buried to mark the start of building work. The time capsule was filled with things that relate to life today donated by the students.
