Construction Youth Trust is a charity whose aim is to inspire and enable young people to overcome barriers and discover a career in the construction and built environment sector.
Social mobility is at the heart of the Trust’s work and they prioritise supporting those young people from low income backgrounds, most likely to miss out on opportunities or facing barriers to employment. They help young people to recognise their potential and discover opportunities that have never previously been presented to them.
Construction Youth Trust work in a place-based way across London and North Kent creating local networks that support young people to journey into rewarding careers.
Through their work, the registered charity aims to broaden career horizons, challenge vocational stereotypes and raise the aspirations of young people, prioritising those most in need and facing the greatest barriers. The Trust support young people to develop the necessary skills and discover opportunities that enable them to achieve their full career potential.
Funded by the CITB and delivered in partnership with London Regional Construction Training Group, the Contextualised Curriculum project aims to facilitate wider industry engagement in secondary schools (11-18 year olds), raising the profile and desirability of careers in construction and the built environment.
The suite of resources, developed and piloted by Construction Youth Trust, can be used by industry professionals and teachers to deliver engaging sessions in schools that contextualise students’ learning in real life scenarios.
