Background

Did you know that at least one third of young people completing a construction further education course do not continue into employment within the industry?
The Bridge into Construction further education programme aims to ensure that young people have the training and skills the industry needs, and employers have access to the next generation of talent.

The programme pilot took place in September 2017 with one college and during the 2018/19 academic year, nine colleges are participating.

Objective

Build UK and Collab Group’s, Bridge into Construction’ programme to be rolled out in colleges nationwide, enabling employers’ direct access to the next generation of apprentices.

Outcome

Bridge into Construction will deliver a project-based teaching style to provide a consistent level of training and competence to equip students with the introductory skills they need to embark on a career in construction.

How to get involved

For the 2018/19 college year employers are needed to support the work experience element of the programme.

To partner with a college delivering Bridge into Construction and provide you with a pool of future Apprentices, please contact Alice Cook.
