Throughout the UK, major construction projects are taking place that will improve millions of lives and create tens of thousands of construction jobs.

Key to the delivery of these projects, and future major projects, is training construction workers who possess the appropriate skills, knowledge and experience.

This is why organisations and figures from across the construction industry are working together to create apprenticeships in construction and other training programmes that produce more of the skilled individuals that are needed.

Major projects are not just about delivering pioneering builds; they're about leaving a skills legacy that supports the UK construction industry for decades to come and that helps people start working in construction.
