This new venture is being developed with the Careers Colleges Trust by construction industry suppliers and employers, led by Grant Findlay of Sir Robert McAlpine. These businesses are working closely with the Trust and education delivery partners to establish an Employer Board to inform organisations delivering construction training.
The aim is to provide training and routes to employment in a range of industry-led modern construction methods, not typically found in FE colleges. These include RC frame, Fenestration, Building Envelope, Structured (Data) Cabling & Dry Lining and green infrastructure (hard and soft landscaping, connecting buildings and space).
This construction training is being designed, overseen and completely informed by construction employers, recognising the current and continuing skills gaps in London.
