This project aims to take the learnings and experiences of delivering the highly successful CITB funded BuildForce and adapt the model to create new and better pathways for all five cohorts.

However, this project will differ from BuildForce in that it will access unique software that will semantically link data from the supply side of all five cohorts and from the demand side of the construction industry (labour forecasts) in a way that creates the pathways for beneficiaries to achieve work related outcomes.
