Coleg Ceredigion, in collaboration with the Ministry of Building Innovation and Education are working with the construction sector (initially in Ceredigion) in a feasibility study to identify a skills gap, and analysis and develop new methods of working to satisfy the growing demands within the construction sector.
The project aims to understand the existing skills gaps within construction companies working in Ceredigion, formulate a new curriculum for the construction sector by working with Ministry of Building Innovation and Education and Pearsons, stimulate new ways of thinking with the aim to transform house building into a precision-engineered and efficient process and develop work experience and post course employment for students who have completed the new range of qualifications.
The project activities include identifying a skills gap analysis and explore new ways of building homes, employing a consultant to develop a questionnaire in conjunction with the college, working in consultation and partnership with the Foundation to develop Level 3 courses to complement their current suite of HE provision, a construction conference which will be arranged to collate and share sector requirements to inform the industry of what businesses need and how it can be delivered and creating a bilingual final report to ensure that the data is shared accordingly with the document being used to develop a Level 3 MOBIE course.
Coleg Ceredigion, supported by Cynnal y Cardi, has now completed the feasibility study with the construction sector in Ceredigion. See full report here:
