If someone says “Construction Career” to you, what springs to mind?… Bricklayer, Joiner, Plumber?
Would it surprise you to learn there are lots of other exciting professional careers in the Construction Industry (or Built Environment as it’s professionally known) that may not have the correctly skilled people to fill them, because young people, and even teachers, don’t know about them? Would it also surprise you to learn that, until now, there has been no dedicated curriculum to encourage young people, like you, to explore these professional careers.
