Each year the sector needs to recruit bright new talent but is the image of construction having a negative effect?

Through presentations and workshops, we will debate what still needs to change for construction to compete in a competitive jobs market.

Mentoring Apprentices in Construction – February 2020

The benefits of employing apprentices are substantial but it does bring additional responsibilities and challenges. From time to time, they may need additional support to keep them on track and motivated to complete their apprenticeship.

This workshop is to provide guidance to employers in Mentoring an Apprentice. Topics will include monitoring progress, dealing with personal issues, unsatisfactory performance, managing highflyers and what to do if the apprenticeship provider is underperforming.
