In April 2011 ConstructionSkills commissioned Pye Tait Consulting to carry out research to examine the extent to which construction qualifications equip young people for the world of work. Specifically, the work was to assess the hypothesis that employers believe that construction qualifications do not equip young people for employment. The basis for the hypothesis resting on both previous (ConstructionSkills) survey research and extensive anecdotal data.
The focus of the research was to indicate the extent to which these views, if indeed held, are founded on a genuine lack of readiness or upon misconceptions about the education and training available to, and for, the construction sector.
