Event description

Description

At Wates we are committed to the long-term sustainability of the built environment and to leaving a lasting legacy for the communities in which we work. As part of our award-winning and industry-leading corporate sustainability programme, Reshaping Tomorrow, we provide training and employment opportunities for those furthest from the workplace.

Building Futures is a two-week programme for adult (19+) job-seekers. It offers adults the chance to visit active construction sites, trains them in key skills, awards them an industry-recognised skills certificate and opens routes for a potential employment in the construction industry.

Established in 2006, Building Futures is managed in partnership with Ixion Holdings, a subsidiary of The Shaw Trust, and supported by Wates Giving.

Building Futures seeks to give participants tangible, relevant career training, through a combined approach of qualifications, employability training and through an expert partner network;


Qualifications

Participants will gain the BTEC Level 1 Certificate in Construction, Asbestos Awareness, Manual Handling and are awarded a free test to secure a five-year Construction Skills Certification Scheme (CSCS) card. Both of these allow participants to work on construction sites - all funded by Ixion and Wates Group.

Employability Training

We provide employability training in the form of job interview training, and classroom exercises designed to boost confidence, self-esteem and presentation skills, to help people who have spent time out of work.

Participants will also visit local Wates sites to gain a valuable insight into what it is like to work in construction and have a guaranteed interview with Wates and their supply chain.


You must be 19+ and unemployed to be eligible for this programme
