Published SLWG Report May 2019 new-housing-future-construction-skills

Everyone
Date of publication:

Foundation, modern and graduate apprenticeships now provide a suite of entry routes which enables in-work training, mentoring and career development. Given the number of retirees in the industry and public sector over the next 5 to 10 years such apprenticeship routes enable knowledge transfer between generations and are well aligned to the sector’s needs. The strong support by the sector towards graduate apprentices (GA’s) is evidenced by the significant industry and public sector demand out stripping supply for places. Investment in public sector planning and building
control departments is essential. It would not matter if the industry had an abundance of skills supply if the primary statutory public sector gateways to new housing development are not sufficiently supported. Local authorities require additional support from government to increase their number of planners and building standards officers.
