How the construction industry is building a better workforce for tomorrow.

How the construction industry is building a better workforce for tomorrow.

The construction industry is constantly changing. Today more than ever, it’s becoming essential to ensure that you have the right people for the job, with the correct NVQ Qualifications and up to date training courses.  

To operate effectively, it’s of great importance to ensure you have a highly trained, skilled and an agile workforce. Companies and individuals are aligning themselves with CITB’s (Construction Industry Training Board) vision of a qualified workforce. 

Your workforce is your foundation, your structure, so it’s important to have a solid base for growth and to be able to weather any storm by obtaining the correct qualifications and quality training.

The Construction (Design and Management) Regulations (CDM 2015), aims to improve health and safety in the industry this applies to all building and construction work including new builds, demolition, refurbishment, extensions, conversions, repair and maintenance no matter what your role.

The costs

It is not always easy to ensure that your workforce is up to speed and operating within the regulations set out. It might be that there isn’t the capital available to fund training, or you feel that there isn’t the time available to have staff away from work attending a course. 

There are options available that could perhaps help potential cash problems or restrictions.

If you have the right amount of experience, but not the right qualification, then a National Vocational Qualification (NVQ) route may be ideal for you.  A National Vocational Qualification (NVQ) can be obtained without time off work, saving you money. There are also payment options available to help spread the cost.

The CITB  have made provision for various grants depending on the type of training. Click here to view grants.

Whether it’s sending off supervisors, managers or laborers to attend a CITB course, or getting your workforce the correct construction NVQ certifications,  industry-recognised certifications are increasingly expected in the modern construction industry.
