Bridge the skills gap with construction

femaleconstructionstudents

From project managing a multi-million pound commercial high rise, to contributing to the regeneration of a city centre; careers in construction can be far more varied than people often believe!

The Government’s ‘National Infrastructure Plan for Skills’ highlighted that the UK will need 150,000 more construction engineers and 250,000 more construction workers by 2020. This is to meet the demand of a pipeline of £411 billion planned public and private construction projects that include HS2 and the extension of Heathrow.

Far too few young people are currently entering the sector, a situation worsened by the fact that almost 400,000 current employees are expected to retire over the next decade. This means that the construction industry currently offers fantastic opportunities. With demand far outweighing supply, salaries are flourishing. According to the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS), workers in construction saw their wages increase by more than 6% in 2015 – a growth rate three times larger than the rest of the workforce.

Alongside traditional trades, Middlesbrough College offers courses leading into constructing specialisms such as quantity surveying, civil engineering and architecture. These roles offer good career prospects, attractive salaries, and the exciting potential to run a construction site from a commercial point of view within a few years. If you fancy pursuing a career in this hands-on industry with exciting prospects, head to our website to view the range of construction trades and specialisms we offer.
