Workforce Mobility and Skills in the UK Construction Sector

This report presents the findings of a survey conducted by IFF Research on behalf of CITB-ConstructionSkills, the Engineering Construction Training Board (ECITB) and the Department of Trade and Industry (DITI). The first wave of the study, which took place in London and the South East (LASER), was also supported by the South East England Development Agency (SEEDA).

The overall aim of the study was to provide reliable data on the nature of the construction workforce in the UK in regard to their qualification levels and the extent of occupational and geographic mobility within the workforce. Compared to other industries, for example, the construction and engineering construction sectors are known to be highly mobile, with many workers prepared to move to where the main construction projects are being undertaken. The level and pattern of such mobility clearly has significant implications for skill requirements and for priorities for training (for example, the geographic distribution of training spend).
