“Go Construct is an industry-wide initiative that aims to attract, inform and retain a talented workforce for the Construction & Built Environment sector. The Go Construct website is funded by the CITB levy and operated by the Construction Industry Training Board”

“A Career like no other, NCTS has pledged its support to encourage people from all backgrounds to consider one of the many careers in construction and the built environment (CB&E). This new campaign branded “Go Construct” comes at a crucial time.  The sector is set to grow by nearly 3% over the next five years, creating over 220,000 new roles.

The Go Construct marketing campaign highlights why construction is “a career like no other” along with the many career opportunities available in the industry.   It has been co-designed by organisations and establishments across the whole of the C&BE industry. Over 400 construction employers, schools and colleges, local government organisations and those with a passion for construction have met to share their ideas for the Go Construct campaign.

The campaign includes the launch of a new web portal which provides a ‘one stop shop’ for anyone considering a career in the industry.  The web portal provides tools, resources and content for teachers, careers advisors, construction ambassadors and employers like NCTS to assist with promoting a positive image of construction.

Both Jayne and Becky, NCTS Employees, are Construction Ambassadors for Go Construct.  A Construction Ambassador is someone who inspires potential new entrants about the industry and is able to convey what it’s actually like to work in construction.  Very often they provide the first introduction to the construction industry for many young individuals who are considering their future career choices.   By reaching out to local communities and highlighting the many fantastic opportunities available within construction they can help to inspire the next generation of new entrants.
