Build back better: Improving the apprenticeship system to better support infrastructure

High skill, high tech construction apprenticeships are needed to boost the skills needed in infrastructure projects to drive the UK’s economic recovery. This is what is being called for by the authors of a new research report entitled ‘Build back better: Improving the apprenticeship system to better support infrastructure’.
The report, written on behalf of the Construction Industry Council (CIC), University College of Estate Management (UCEM) and the Technical Apprenticeship Consortium (TAC), with data used from a CIC survey of employers, recommends that Government works with CIC, employers and the professional bodies to: recognise the value of technical and higher-level apprenticeships leading to professional registration; increase the flexibility of the apprenticeship levy; join up and improve the apprenticeship systems across the UK; and celebrate and promote apprenticeships.
