Looking to the future

The construction industry is likely to continue changing rapidly. So there is going to be a continuing need to update the skills of the

workforce if companies are to maintain their competitive edge.

There will be an even wider range of training providers looking to meet these needs with an ever-expanding and sophisticated toolkit of

training methods.

Some likely trends are:

The growing use of the Investors in People Standard as a framework for training provision.

Closer and longer-term relationships between individual construction companies and training providers to ensure that programmes are fit for purpose and meet the emerging needs of the industry.

A database of information on training that gives employers ready and effective access to the information they need.

Use of benchmarking training provision through use of the Code of Practice.
