Find My Future - Salford
Over the course of the pandemic we have had to change the way we work to keep our employees and communities safe. This included working with Salford City Council, Salix Homes and Galliford Try to coordinate an online Find My Future event.
The weeklong virtual event was aimed at 16 to 25-year olds who were invited to tune in to videos that partners had created. This helped to showcase the apprenticeships, study programmes and traineeships available in Salford and encourage prospects to learn, gain experience and develop skills. Over the full week, the sessions reached over 28,000 people, and had approximately 7,500 views.
Trinity Academy - Newcastle
Working with Newcastle Trinity Academy over a three-week period, we supported students to better understand construction, and engage with the industry and potential career opportunities.
Through a number of virtual sessions, we helped the students to produce small, 10-unit, sustainable 3D developments, culminating in the groups presenting their designs and ideas along with their calculations to show their profit margins.
Mentoring circle - Nottingham
Working in partnership with the Department for Work and Pensions and Nottingham Jobs, we have been supporting local people in Gedling through a Construction Mentoring programme.
The programme supports people who are interested in a career in construction with a variety of support to assist them with their career development journey. The partnership has provided training to obtain a CSCS card, a two-week site-based work experience placement at our Chase Farm development and ongoing employability support upon completion of the programme.
Build – North Glasgow
Keepmoat Homes have a long-term partnership with Glasgow Kelvin College.
BUILD North Glasgow will provide skills, work experience and qualifications to candidates, providing them with best possible chance of securing employment in the industry.
The programme was awarded £1.2m from CITB to deliver the programme over three years, supporting 180 individuals from key priority groups. All participants receive full employability training and a number of other bespoke sessions supporting personal development along with a whole host of construction, engineering and plant-based training and qualifications.
