UCEM features in ‘Masterminds of Construction’ in association with ITN productions and the CIOB
Posted on: 13 December, 2016
We are delighted to announce and share with you the news that UCEM features in ‘Masterminds of Construction’. A programme created in partnership with ITN Productions and Chartered Institute of Building.
‘Masterminds of Construction’ has been created to promote the role of the construction industry and to address the challenges it faces. As an organisation playing a leading role in tackling some of these challenges, UCEM was invited to contribute.
The construction industry is currently facing a large skills and diversity deficit with numerous initiatives in place to try and widen both participation and accessibility. With the role of apprenticeships set to change in April 2017, organisations will soon be in a stronger position to fund their future workforce. The additional investment in apprenticeships will offer a way of closing the skills gap, offering more people the accessibility to higher education. At UCEM, our range of online programmes enables apprentices to gain a professionally recognised qualification whilst gaining experience in the working world; we’re proud to be able to support students in the next step of their career.
Featuring our own Ashley Wheaton and Lynne Downey, alongside Arup and some of our talented students working at RG Carter, the programme brings to life the exciting and diverse range of careers available within the Construction industry.
