Onsite experience hubs - Wales

Between 2021 and mid-2024 we aim to increase the construction talent pool in Wales through Onsite Experience hubs, creating a talent pipeline to meet the needs of local construction employers and enabling construction career opportunities for people from local communities. Four hubs have been approved for £3.6m of funding to enable over 1,900 people to become employment and site-ready, and at least 850 people, many in remote communities, to secure sustained employment within the next three years. In addition, hubs in Wales are delivering onsite experiences to over 1,600 full-time Construction Diploma students to make them better equipped to enter employment on completion of their studies.

What Onsite Experience hubs deliver for the construction industry

Onsite Experience hubs are designed to provide a one-stop recruitment solution for construction employers. By linking together employers, training providers, local authorities, community agencies and other partners, hubs enable the development of employment and site-ready people from local communities. These well-suited candidates can then be linked to employers’ vacancies, and because they have gained some initial experience on construction sites, often with the recruiting employer, and have the necessary introductory training and health & safety credentials, they can be productive immediately.
