The construction industry is essential to the modern urban environment, but the attraction and retention of employees in this sector has never been more of a challenge
A substantial proportion of construction workers are reaching retirement age and the industry is experiencing intense competition in recruitment from other industries that are attracting young talent. The construction sector faces skills challenges, which make cost-effective training and professional development opportunities a high priority.
There are continuing efforts to ensure that construction is a safe and healthy industry whilst, at the same time, firms must integrate new technologies for project management and delivery, comply with tighter regulations and respond to the increasing focus on sustainable building. Construction firms need to keep large numbers of workers trained on important new processes, tools and practices.

We can deliver training needs assessments, competency frameworks and e-learning that upskills workers quickly and provides personalised development pathways.
