Welcome to the ConstructionSkills Business Plan. The purpose of the Plan is to set the vision and priorities for action over the next five years 2007-2011.

  • Improve performance and productivity
  • Address skills gaps and shortages
  • Give its workforce greater opportunities for training and development

Intro to the Business plans:

We have developed a Sector Skills Agreement through extensive consultation with employers and employees, and subsequently business plans, which identify priority areas for short, medium and long-term actions.

The business plans fall into two groups. The first group summarises the plans from a geographical perspective, the second group consists of the plans that cover our major areas of activity.

The plans detail how we will deliver our promise to industry, and our coverage of everyone working in the industry, from the professional to the spectrum of trade occupations and across the whole of the UK.
