Skills and numbers

The number of people in the UK has risen by five million over the past 12 years. It’s growing faster than anywhere else in Europe. As such, opportunities for skilled and flexible contractors have increased. As a result, evidence from states surveys carried out in regard to training has been positive. It is showing increasing proportions of individuals with higher level qualifications. About one-fifth of all vacancies in the wider construction sector are persistently hard to fill. Therefore employers cannot recruit staff with the right skills, qualifications or experience.

Qualifications can make applicants more likely to gain employment and be successful in their chosen occupations. This will, in turn, benefit themselves, the workforce, the community and the economy.
