Construction Skills Fund – Meet the Candidate: Phil Murphy

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.

“Procure Plus helping us utilise The Construction Skills Fund has been invaluable to Spire CS as a business and enabled us to recruit ready trained employees. It has also helped us link in closer to the communities across Greater Manchester and support Spire CS as a business tailor making a bespoke training package.”
