CIOB provides school visit toolkit

The latest industry initiative to attract young people into a career in construction is a special toolkit for companies to take with them on school visits.

The Think Construction toolkit, put together by the Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB), includes a film, presentations, case studies and games. It has been developed in partnership with teachers and young people to help CIOB members structure careers advice sessions.

CIOB commercial director Jacqueline Balian said:  “We are very conscious many pupils and schools are only aware of the trade level jobs in construction and that is hampering the sector’s recruitment scope. We aim to show the full range of management positions and help our members attract the new people they need.”

She added: “We think this will also help our members develop their presentation skills and the pack gives them all the content they need to do a really engaging presentation including video clips, games, information and presentation templates.”

Think Construction is the latest in a series of schools initiatives from the CIOB, following on from My Kinda Future and the development of Craft Your Future, the industry’s first Minecraft lessons.
