Construction Skills Network forecasts 2016-2020 - West Midlands
This report, still the industry’s most comprehensive and up-to-date, predicts growth in every nation and region in the UK. The rate varies across the three nations – Wales leads the way with a 7.1% annual growth forecast whereas England is predicted to experience a 2.5% annual expansion, and Scotland a 0.5% annual increase in output. With an annual UK average increase of 2.5%, driven by the infrastructure and private housing sectors, these figures are encouraging.
This forecast should help employers feel more confident about taking on an apprentice or investing in their existing workforce. But of course they cannot do it alone, which is where CITB comes in. Recognising the challenge industry faces, CITB is committed to help construction employers deliver the pipeline of work faster, better and more efficiently.
