Home Building Skills Partnership Launches Campaign For Young Apprentices
The Home Building Skills Partnership has launched an initiative to encourage more young people to get involved in home building and choose it as a solid career path.
To celebrate National Apprenticeship Week (March 4th to 8th 2019), the organisation has made a video called ‘The Sound of House Building’ to show what life on a construction site is really like to those still making their job choices.
It focuses on the sounds they would hear when building new homes, whether they work on site or in an office.
A spokesperson for the Home Builders Federation (HBF) said: “The new video will link school and college leavers to the House Building Careers website where they can find out more about roles, how much they can earn and where they can work.”
The website also showcases case studies from graduates and apprentices working in construction, so young people can find out more about their experience.
This campaign, along with support for National Apprenticeship Week from other house-building companies, are intended to encourage more people to consider construction as a career.
Recent figures from the government certainly indicate an increased demand for people to work with concrete reinforcement leeds or sheet metal flashings on a daily basis as house building continues to increase.
Homes England reported 15,766 homes had started to be built and 15,704 had been completed between April 1st and September 30th 2018. This is an increase of 15 and 31 per cent respectively compared with the first half of 2017-18, showing significant growth in this area of construction work.
