New joint venture to address challenges in the construction sector

Having partnered with Morgan Sindall Construction for over 10 years on various projects, we knew our vision for helping young people to reach their infinite potential was a shared one. Now we’re very excited to have the chance to take it one step further!

Our new joint venture (JV) will mean a seismic shift in the approach to training for the construction sector, addressing emotional health, suicide and gender imbalance, as well as general skills gaps and an ageing workforce. Already, 35 young people have joined our Pre-Apprenticeship Programme and are benefiting from the new JV!

What makes our new JV stand out?

We’re creating Modern Apprenticeship opportunities in Construction and Civil Engineering Operations at SCQF Level 5, within the Glasgow and South Ayrshire areas through our new bespoke Pre-Apprenticeship Programme.

We’ll also support the Foundation Apprenticeship model, bridging the gap between education and employment by delivering Civil Engineering and Craft frameworks. This will help a further 35 learners, all with aspirations to work within the construction sector.

As with all of our training, we’ll be taking a progressive and holistic approach in this sector-leading JV to support young people to overcome social and emotional barriers. There will be a coaching and health and wellbeing programme woven through the training with activities like body based mindfulness, Neurolinguistic Programming (NLP), physical exercise and yoga.

We provide skills for the future and our new JV programmes will be no different. Not only will they be aligned with employer demand, they will also reflect the key aims set out by Construction Scotland and the Construction Recovery Plan, covering areas like Net Zero Carbon and digital construction skills. We’re pleased to be supported by partners like CECA, CITB, Construction Scotland Innovation Centre and Digital Construction Skills Scotland.

Our programmes will be delivered in areas local to key Morgan Sindall Construction Projects, like the Prestwick Education Campus and Maybole Community Campus. We’ll support a wide variety of supply chain contractors through the Shared Apprenticeship Scheme model, with many having voiced their support for this model to support them during the most challenging economic climate our nation has faced in recent history.
