This project will seek to design and develop a program of activities that would enable a suitable transition into the construction industry for the target group (Service leavers and Full-time Learners).

The program will involve training, placement, mentoring and support for the target groups to successful transition into employment into the construction industry.  One of the unique features of this project will be the development of online resources that will be freely available to construction industry companies designed to equip companies to attract and retain employees from the target group.

The online resources will also be available to FE and other training organisations to help them deliver suitable soft-skills content to their students. The project will provide a template that will make it easier for construction industry companies to directly employ the target group and support them without the involvement of third parties. As such, one of the key project deliverables will be the development of online resources to be freely available on a dedicated website.
