The Scheme partners with The Prince’s Trust

The Considerate Constructors Scheme has become a partner of youth charity The Prince’s Trust to support their ‘Get Into’ programme which helps to tackle youth unemployment. The Scheme will sit on the committee of The Prince’s Trust Built Environment Leadership Group (BELG) and will specifically support the ‘Get into Construction’ programme, which helps unemployed young people gain valuable training and skills, and ultimately find employment within the construction industry. Three in four young people supported The Prince’s Trust move into work, training or education. Recent research by The Prince’s Trust suggests that three-quarters of business leaders in the construction sector believe a significant skills crisis will hit their firms within the next three years (79 per cent), while two fifths predict this will happen within the next 12 months (45 per cent). Three in four construction bosses surveyed fear...

Wernick Hire becomes first registered Supplier

Wernick Hire becomes first registered Supplier

The Considerate Constructors Scheme has welcomed Wernick Hire as its first registered supplier in its new Supplier Registration membership scheme. Introduced in June 2014 in recognition of the critical contribution suppliers make to the construction industry, Supplier Registration is for companies that provide goods and materials to the construction industry. The Wernick Group have been supplying modular and temporary buildings for over 80 years and have grown to be the largest supplier in Britain. Commenting on Wernick Hire’s registration, Mike Petter, Chairman of the Scheme said: We’re delighted to welcome Wernick Hire to the Scheme. Supplier Registration is an important step in our development as an organisation that is pushing for higher standards across the whole construction industry. Wernick Hire consistently applies high standards throughout its business and that makes them an ideal member of the Scheme. Michael Thistlethwaite,...

'Spotlight on… apprenticeships' update

'Spotlight on… apprenticeships' update

Earlier this year the Scheme shined a spotlight on apprenticeships and looked at what the industry was doing to encourage new talent into construction. 'Spotlight on... apprenticeships' introduced facts regarding apprenticeships and the benefits that many employers have gained by offering this type of work placement. There are already a number of campaigns offered throughout the UK, and many opportunities within construction, but there is still much that can be done to attract new talent into the industry. The response the Scheme received from the industry once 'Spotlight on... apprenticeships' launched was fantastic, with many sites and companies getting in touch with the Scheme to demonstrate what they are doing with apprentices. Many articles and case studies from the industry have been added to the Scheme's 'Spotlight on... apprenticeships' webpage, which you can view by clicking here. Bam shared...

LABC encourages registration with the Scheme

LABC encourages registration with the Scheme

The LABC have produced a guide which encourages all building control departments and surveyors to support the Scheme and its aim to improve the image of construction. LABC (Local Authority Building Control) is a membership organisation representing all local authority building control departments in England and Wales; they are a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to promoting public sector expertise. The guide, Building control and the construction industry working in partnership, introduces the Scheme, its five-point Code of Considerate Practice and discusses the various ways that the industry can register. The guide highlights the importance of demonstrating a better image of the industry for the benefit of communities and local authorities, and recommends registration with the Scheme as a means of achieving this. LABC notes two ways in which building control and planning departments can support and promote the Scheme. The...

Ivor Goodsite's Hoarding Competition 2014

Ivor Goodsite's Hoarding Competition 2014

After an incredible response from sites all over the UK, the Scheme is pleased to announce the winners of this year's Ivor Goodsite Hoarding Competition. Last year saw the launch of the competition whereby construction sites invited local schools and children's groups to participate in decorating their hoardings. Events were organised over the summer months, where children could let their imagination run wild as they decorated site hoardings based on their chosen theme. This year's competition saw the second Hoarding Competition launched in April and the Scheme has received an even bigger response than last year! The Ivor Goodsite Hoarding competition has proved to be a successful innovation for construction sites across the UK to work together with their surrounding communities, and actively involve young people who may be affected by their works. Upon entering the competition, the children were...
