Industrial Strategy: Construction 2025 • Encourage more non-government owned pipelines to build a better picture of future demand • Develop and refine the pipeline of future work opportunities and make it more useable for all construction businesses • Work with academic and research communities to bring forward more research, development and demonstration to the wider industry and work to remove barriers to innovation
  11. 11. Labour and training supply • 75% average increase in skills volumes • Key skills shortages in certain sectors  Building envelope  Steel erection  Formwork joinery  Glaziers  Civil engineering • Greater requirement for competency-based training Competency-based training NVQ (Competency Based) Non-NVQ (without competency) 0 50 100 150 SOC06 SOC14 SOC15 SOC16 SOC21 SOC23 Structural & Building Envelope Training Requirements Average 2010-2013 Average 2014-2017
  12. 12. Competency-based training supply • Trades with notional over-supply are actually under- supplied when competency is taken into account • Entry-level qualifications can provide a route into further training that is competency-based • Data suggests that this rarely happens • Overall supply into construction FE sufficient, but poorly targeted with little retention -100% -50% 0% 50% 100% 150% 200% Soc04Woodtrades andinteriorfit-out Soc18Electrical tradesand… Soc19Plumbingand heating,ventilation,… Soc02Construction managers Soc07Paintersand decorators All Qualifications NVQ (Competency Based)
