Sector Based Work Academy Programmes

Building Pathways organises a variety of industry-led programmes, comprising pre-employment workshops and training, work experience placements and a guaranteed job interview over a duration of 2-3 weeks.

The scheme is linked to major construction projects in the local area with genuine job and apprenticeship opportunities, connecting job seeking local residents to employers.

Our programmes can be delivered Face2Face or virtually, depending upon COVID restrictions, and are designed for 8 – 12 individuals aged 16 and above who are interested in a career in the construction industry.  The training includes L1 Health & Safety / CSCS Green Card if not already held.

Each programme of 2-3 weeks includes the following elements and objectives:

Work-readiness training: A series of virtual / classroom based workshops providing employer-led enrichment and pre-employability support to prepare candidates for the world of work.

Job interviews: Each candidate will be offered a guaranteed job interview with one of our employers. Candidates will be given job interview training during the pre-employment phase of the programme.

Work experience: Virtual or onsite tours to an employer’s construction project for candidates to gain exposure to the industry.

Accredited learning: Includes the online CSCS Green card package (L1 Health and Safety in Construction Environment, CSCS training and Test). In addition, optional short accredited courses such as Fire Marshalling, First Aid at Work, Manual Handling etc.

Willmott Dixon are delighted to have recently partnered with Building Pathways to deliver a collaborative Building Lives & Building Pathways programme. Delivering training and employment opportunities and seeing positive outcomes for many of those on the programme – increased confidence, self esteem, CSCS cards and employment – has been fantastic. Building Pathways shares Willmott Dixon’s values and the team are driven to change not only some of the misconceptions surrounding the construction industry but, most importantly, people’s lives.
