This Sector Skills Agreement for Construction offers significantly increased employer commitments to training and skills. The objective is to work in partnership with further and higher education and government agencies to respond to the key skills challenges revealed by research and industry consultation.  In addition to considerable investment by individual companies employers have agreed a financial strategy in which they will provide funding of over £120 million per year for collective training activity.  

The Agreement covers the whole construction industry, from craft to professional, both new build and repair and maintenance, across the whole of the UK with separate agreements for England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.  At the core of the Agreement are the collective action plans addressing the construction industry’s major skills challenges. 

With construction underpinning all other UK industries and public services, and employing over two million workers, its impact and importance to UK Plc cannot be underestimated.

Construction has grown over 30% in the last ten years in both output and workforce. It is building the houses that key workers need. It is building the hospitals that the NHS needs, it is building the transport and infrastructure that the economy depends on. And, it is building the schools that our children need.
