Building Growth South West – Our Story

The Building Growth South West project was developed with 3 core activities in mind:

  • Show the true, appealing face of the construction sector to those who hadn’t considered it before.
  • Provide development and offer training for all workplace skills
  • Run pre-employment workshops and training sessions.

We aim to work with young people who aren’t currently in work, education or training, women, ex-services, long-term unemployed and those leaving full time education.

Building Growth South West will showcase over 100 different events, enable many people to get themselves into employment and provide ongoing impact within the construction industry.

The project is based in the South West, with training focuses in Bristol and Exeter.

“People are quick to write off construction as an unattractive career path. We’re here to show otherwise.”

What can Building Growth do for me?

If you’re a learner and are interested in seeing what the construction sector can offer you then either get in touch with us today or sign up to attend one of our many events.

If you have access to groups of learners who might be interested in Building Growth then please contact us to see how we can assist them.

If you’re a construction firm or company who is interested in sharing their skills and/or offering training then we’d love to hear from you.
