Supporting new jobs and creating skills locally
Filling skills gaps in the construction industry
Plymouth City Council
‘Building Plymouth’ is a Plymouth City Council-led, private and public sector partnership with the construction and built environment sector aims to reduce the skills gaps and shortages facing the local construction industry. This aims to increase the number of skilled people joining the industry to deliver the 10,000 projected new jobs being created in the city. To support this, the council is accredited as a National Skills Academy for Construction committed to maximising employment and skills opportunities through planning and procurement on construction projects in Plymouth. During the past 12 months, Building Plymouth has supported over 5,000 local people through their delivery of extensive career events.
