About the Project

Building Pathways was set up in 2019 to inspire, engage and support emerging and new talent to pursue construction careers by providing high quality information, advice and mentoring, and access to training and employment opportunities.

In collaboration with construction employers, the mentoring aspect of this initiative matches emerging talent from underrepresented groups to industry professionals and tradespersons from construction and built environment.  Our mentors provide essential career guidance and support, organise work placements and raise the profile of the industry.

We are currently looking for more Industry Mentors to join our growing programme.
