Training in the North East
Construction in the North East
The construction industry supplies a huge amount to the UK’s economy. It provides work for more than two million people across the country. The North East of England contributes a great deal to this sector; with companies ranging from small one-man outfits to huge operations such as Persimmon, Bellway and Barratt who are heavily occupying the area.
“The Skills Shortage”
Due to the skills shortage in construction in the North East, big housing projects and infrastructure projects are being put at risk of cancellation and delays; this puts an emphasis on the need for training in this region. Reports show that North East construction professionals are in the need of extra labour with workloads on the rise. Due to the obvious need for skilled workers, wages in construction are increasing. This could appear to be an attractive reason for construction workers to get themselves further training in order to gain employment in a skilled job role.
