Industry-first training scheme creates sustainable jobs in the construction sector
ACADEMY PARTICIPANTS CAN IMPROVE THEIR EMPLOYABILITY AND GAIN FIRST-HAND EXPERIENCE IN A RANGE OF ROLES
We’re collaborating on a new Sector-Based Work Academy Programme (SWAP) in the South East of England.
The ‘A27 East of Lewes Improvements Scheme’ aims to provide sustainable employment for jobseekers in a range of roles, across several businesses in the construction industry.
Participants will join the academy at East Sussex College, where they’ll receive formal training in a range of areas that will benefit their employability.
Training areas include:
- Formal health and safety
- LANTRA traffic management
- Employability and CV writing
- Behavioural and customer service
After graduating, participants will begin site-based learning to build their experience in the construction sector, which will include shadowing staff to gain first-hand experience in the roles available to them on construction or civil engineering sites.
As well as being a hugely beneficial opportunity for the academy participants, we’re looking forward to working with hard-working, qualified individuals who will become valued members of our team.
By helping graduates achieve their qualifications, the scheme will lead to safer roads, better connected communities and environmental improvements.
