    Bridge into Construction Programme is launched

    Build UK and Collab Group’s ‘Bridge into Construction’ programme has launched at Sheffield College, with the one year further education course beginning on 1 October 2017. Research by CITB and IFF Research shows that at present at least one third of young people completing a construction further education course do not continue into employment within the industry. As part of Inspiring Construction, the industry’s recruitment campaign, the Bridge into Construction course 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 one year further education course will be piloted by two colleges - Sheffield College and South Thames College. It will provide a consistent level of training and competence to equip students with the introductory skills they need to embark on an apprenticeship in construction. Currently too many young people decide to leave the industry after further education, because of a lack of the appropriate skills required for an apprenticeship. The newly designed course, which was developed with strong employer input, allows construction and the further education sectors to implement a construction vocational route at least four years ahead of Government timetable set out in the Post-16 Skills Plan. The format of the course will be a project-based teaching style which allows the participating students to understand the lifecycle of a construction project – from the tendering stage, through to design, construction and post-construction. It will also provide students with qualifications including the Level 1 Award in Health and Safety in a Construction Environment, and provide a strong foundation for a future career in the industry. There are currently 30 number of students signed up to the course, with Berkeley Group supporting the course by offering work experience to these students. Students will also visit a number of live construction sites as part of the Open Doors initiative which runs from 19-24 March 2018. Students are expected to complete the course by July 2018.
