Construction Work Tasters Launch

Construction Work Tasters Launch

The Construction Work Tasters project will officially launch on 20 March 2023

Funded by the Construction Industry Training Board (CITB), this project will support young people to learn more about the wealth of career opportunities in the construction and built environment sector. By working closely with employers, this project can also help to alleviate some of the recruitment challenges the sector is experiencing.

Construction Work Tasters are a short version of a work experience. Importantly, they are led by employers and take place on site or in the working environment. As the name suggests, however, they offer a taster of the industry and last between half a day and two days.

The launch week will act as a platform to reach more partners across industry, education, the third sector and local government.

Click here for more info

 

The Work Tasters website (www.worktasters.scot) is now live. This is the online hub for the project. Employers can post opportunities; young people can sign up to them. Educators and young people can also register their interest in attending Work Tasters. There might not be Work Tasters in your area yet, but if we know there’s interested young people then we will work with employers to create those opportunities.

It’s a team effort to support young people to prepare for the world of work.

At DYW we have seen the positive impact of when businesses are involved in providing inspirational opportunities for young people to help them understand and develop the skills they need to succeed.

For employers, engagement in schools and colleges provides access to a diverse pool of future talent and enables industry to take a lead role in inspiring young people and shaping the future workforce. This engagement helps to build young people skills for both work and life, adds relevance to their academic work and raises the career aspirations amongst Scotland’s future workforce. 

This free training workshop will increase your confidence to discuss your industry to a young audience and provide you with top tips to plan and deliver activities in school or college.

This workshop is designed to support individuals who currently engage with or would like to engage with young people in schools and colleges.
