Building careers in construction for disadvantaged young people in Southwark
London SE16 4EE

Construction Youth Trust help young people aged 16-30 facing social or economic barriers to build better futures by giving them access to training, education and employment.

They work with

  • young people not in education/employment/training (NEET), without the financial means to access training or who are under-employed
  • young offenders/at risk of offending
  • homeless/vulnerably housed individuals
  • groups which are under-represented in construction (e.g. BAME communities and women)

Their range of programmes includes Budding Builders courses providing practical construction skills training (tiling, bricklaying carpentry, painting etc.), employability coaching, accredited qualifications, work placements and support to enter employment or further training.

Their partnerships with employers ensure that their courses are relevant and that the young people they work with progress into work placements and employment opportunities. Construction Youth Trust have considerable experience working closely with a range of corporate partners, from major international companies to small local firms.
