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.

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.
