We need an extra 217,000 workers over the next five years to ensure construction can continue to thrive.
Apprenticeships will help futureproof the industry and provide an excellent route to secure a skilled, diverse future workforce.
There are a number of schemes that are supported by your Levy, are free to access and with your involvement will help bring new talent into the industry. There has never been a better time to take on an apprentice with support from CITB and the UK Government.
Take on an apprentice, advertise your vacancy and receive funding to support their learning. Up to £15,000 over three years until 30 September 2021.
2. Information and resources
Funded by the CITB Levy, Go Construct is the go-to website for potential entrants to explore career opportunities, find guidance on progressing through the industry and be directed to opportunities to experience and join.
Advertise experiences, apprenticeships, traineeships and graduate placements on Talentview. Find potential candidates and let them find you – all for free.
