Bridge into Construction Programme – An Update

Build UK and Collab Group are pleased to announce that 9 colleges are participating in the Bridge into Construction Programme for 2018/19.

Blackpool and Barnet & Southgate colleges have already started delivering the programme.

Work Experience requirements:

  • Barnet & Southgate – Work Placement required from January 2019 for ideally two weeks
  • Blackpool – Work Placement required in March for 2 weeks

The following colleges will start the programme in due course:

  • LSEC – London South East Colleges
  • Newham
  • North West London
  • Sheffield
  • South Essex
  • South Thames
  • Trafford

Build UK would like members to support the work placement element of this scheme. It is fantastic to see members such as Berkeley Group and Kier already confirmed to support the students with work experience.

With the introduction of T-Levels, it is a great way to start to develop your relationship with the colleges and provide the much-needed experience students need to understand the world of work in construction.

To express an interest in providing work placements or for further information, please contact Alice Cook.
