One of the organisations Re:vision helps fund are B4box. B4box is a construction company but they also provide training and employment opportunities for those most distant from the labour market. B4box has a training academy for their apprentices and over 95% of these apprentices remain in sustainable employment with B4box or other firms who ask to hire their graduates.
““We value our partnership with Re:vision because of the encouragement and support we receive from the team and the positive impact that our collaboration has on the lives of local beneficiaries. Re:vision’s intent to support people into employment aligns perfectly with B4Box’s work and they are particularly supportive of our mission to bring people from under-represented groups into the construction industry. As well as providing employment and training opportunities for people in need, this enables us to attract new talent into construction to address the sector’s skills crisis and support the ongoing development of the industry””
“This has been one the best things I’ve ever done. I would recommend it to any person who is struggling to find a place in society. I know women are under-represented in construction but personally as a woman working in construction it makes me feel stronger about who I am. B4Box introduced me to UCATT, the construction trade union, and I have been able to travel to events in Birmingham and London to promote the construction industry to women and to make politicians and policymakers think about how they can make positive changes so other women can follow me into the industry. I know the journey I have been on makes my Grandma so proud which is the best reward for me.”
“I enjoy what I do, every day in my job is different, and it’s great to be learning new skills and doing things I’ve never done before. To people looking to get back into work or find a new career direction, I say keep trying. Don’t wait for something to fall straight into your lap because it won’t happen, but if you work hard and try new things, then there can be light at the end of tunnel and like me you can find something that is perfect for you”
“I’ve been in construction for 55 years and Clare is one of best apprentices I’ve seen. She is very eager to learn and has quickly picked-up new skills to already produce a very good standard of work. I know she is destined to become a great all-round, multi-skilled operative”
