About this group

The construction industry has a negative reputation of being slow to evolve, especially when compared to other sectors such as tech, automatic and aerospace. This perception filters through to those who are considering a career within the construction industry, as well as those who are already working within it.

This lack of adaption (perceived or not) will result in the industry stalling, sticking to the same old ways of doing things and not keeping up with those sectors highlighted above.

The focus of the Future Skills Theme Group has two key elements:

  1. Addressing the challenge of recruiting future talent into the industry
  2. Addressing the skills gap within current workforce

We believe the two elements above are vital if real change is to unfold. We must attract the best recruits into the industry to bring new energy and ideas. We must also focus on aligning those already within the industry to the future needs, technologies and ways of working.
