In response to Neil Carmichaels PoliticsHome article on the need to tackle the productivity gap, The Chartered Institute of BuildingsBridget Bartlett informs how the construction industry is improving the skills base through Vocational Qualifications and training.

Bridget Bartlett, CIOB deputy chief executive commented; “As Mr Carmichael points out, vocational qualifications are a vital piece of the national skills puzzle.

“Construction has a history of supporting vocational qualifications especially apprenticeships.  Degree Apprenticeships in particular will enhance the employment prospects of apprentices and give them access to professional qualifications and Chartered careers that inevitably will open doors for them here in the UK and overseas.

“Our No More Lost Generations report, authored by a group of parliamentarians, highlights the need to deliver high-quality education and training through more vocational routes, away from the typical university model. With almost 1 million young people aged between 16-24 not in education, employment, or training we must further open up viable vocational routes across all industries to ensure our skills system delivers for all.”
