“As an organisation of construction insurance specialists, we understand the key part we play in attracting young people to the industry and developing future talent for UK construction. The housebuilding sector has a genuine opportunity to support the way that skills training is developed and delivered, enabling students to live up to their potential from the start of their careers.”
Steve Mansour, CEO
“It is of paramount importance to offer young people a fair chance to show what they are capable of and it is in everyone’s interest to ensure that these students continue on their path to a rewarding career in construction. Part of achieving this goal calls for collaborating with universities to attract potential new entrants into construction-related degrees such as architecture, surveying or engineering.”
Laura McClintock, Head of HR
“Giving young people support to develop their skills is exactly the break that our sector needs to tackle the growing skills shortage the construction industry is facing. There are so many talented students who really deserve a chance to shine. This scholarship is an excellent example of a construction-related company contributing to help students develop a career in our industry.”
