By John Corser Published: 11 March 2021
Ladder for the Black Country is again supporting Black Country Skills Factory to host another virtual World of Work week covering the construction sector.
Running from Monday, March 22 to Friday, March 26, there will be a whole range of events to participate and celebrate the construction sector.
With help from partners and industry experts the week is designed to inspire people to work in this sector.
It will help students who are deciding what their future career might be, provide those looking for employment with valuable information and help people interested in the sector learn from the experts.
Launching the week will be a Primary Careers 2030 session with a special guest from Making Learning Work.
Organisations taking part in the week include Highways England, Garfield Davis Architectural, BAM Nuttall, Lovell Homes, Midland Metro Alliance, St Modwen, Barhale, Accord Group, Erban Homes, Willmott Dixon, Balfour Beatty and The Black Country Living Museum.
On Wednesday March 24, Walsall College will be joining the session on routes into construction, with more than 700 opportunities there will be lots of information on civil engineering, building services to professional occupations.
Construction careers also involves people who work in offices, just as much as those who work on site. For those who prefer to be desk based the offsite construction session on Thursday will show how to build the world from behind a desk.
In the afternoon there will be a Learn Live session with construction companies working in the Black Country and surrounding areas who will showcase the exciting projects they are currently involved in building.
Finally, on Friday there will be a session on a history of construction.
