Image & Recruitment
Construction will need almost half a million new recruits between now and 2010. So as well as the traditional pool of male school leavers, we need to attract more graduates, more women, older people and ethnic minorities.
CONSTRUCTION: A POSITIVE CAREER CHOICE FOR ALL
The issue The idea The progress The commitment The results

THE COMMITMENT REQUIRED

From Government:

  • Avoid gender stereotyping at school by extending funding to provide construction curriculum activities in all schools.

From employers:

  • Enable employees to train as Construction Ambassadors to go into schools and promote construction as a career option – especially for women and ethnic minorities.
  • Support the development and piloting of vocational qualifications for use in schools, such as the GCSE in Construction and the Built Environment.

From supply side:

  • Accreditation and delivery of vocational qualifications for use in schools which fully embrace the range of opportunities that construction offers.
