Event description


The growing shortage of skills in the UK construction sector is well recognised.

It is clear that stability and sustainability are absolutely vital for both sides of the supply chain equation, and collaboration is key to achieving them.

In response, Building Plymouth, a unique partnership with local construction and built environment stakeholders’ supported by the CITB, is working together to ensure delivery of 10,000 projected new jobs in 10 years to support the booming construction pipeline of the City. Plymouth City Council is now accredited as a CITB National Skills Academy for Construction committed to maximising employment and skills opportunities through local planning and procurement on construction projects in Plymouth.

Through our new Roadshow events, we invite you to help drive greater engagement through:

  • ‘Meeting the buyer’ – and hearing more about the contract opportunities ahead

  • Exploring ways of plugging the skills gaps and skills shortages relevant to your business

  • Learning how Building Plymouth and the CITB can help connect you with local people and train/up-skill your existing workforce

  • Understanding the CITB funding available to support skills

  • Dispelling myths about recruiting apprentices and find out just how easy it is to invest

  • Helping to inspire the next generation to join our industry

  • Supporting delivery of employment and skills plans
