Construction Youth Trust will test and develop effective pathways into construction for harder-to-reach young people and create a comprehensive best practice toolkit that will provide employers, particularly SMEs and supply-chain companies, with proven methods of engaging, recruiting and retaining two of the priority groups:
Through a project that will research, develop and test new and existing approaches and pathways (e.g. engagement activities, work-readiness programmes, resources, coaching frameworks, support networks), we will support employers of all sizes, with a focus on supply-chain employers, to connect with NEET young people and full-time FE learners.
As well as prioritising young people who have historically been under-represented in the industry (i.e. people from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnicity (BAME) backgrounds and young women), we also want to reach young people who do not currently view employment in the construction industry favourably, and help them to realise the varied opportunities and entry routes available to them.

The project was terminated in May 2020 as a result of the strategic changes from CITB's response to the COVID-19 pandemic, materials attached reflect this.
