A multi-million pound fund to help tackle the construction skills shortage was launched in June 2018. The fund is part of the government’s ‘National Retaining Scheme’, seeking to provide the training employers want to help those out of work, or at risk of redundancy, to start new careers.
Funded by the Department for Educations the pilot scheme aims to inform larger policy developments (National Retraining Scheme and T-Levels). The Construction Skill Fund (CSF) aims to increase the number of people trained in construction, tackle the skills shortage and help build the homes and infrastructure England needs.
Procure Plus is one of only three Construction Skills Fund projects in the Northwest of England.
Working with B4 Box to deliver our training, we are well ahead of our target to deliver 350 candidates into employment by June 2020. In a series of proﬁle pieces we will be introducing some of these successful candidates to hear how this fund has changed the course of their working lives.
