PROJECT: Building Futures
Building Futures is an innovative approach to engaging young women in construction careers. The project is a unique after-school club aimed at female students who work in teams to plan and design a virtual construction project. With support from industry experts, students get the chance to try a range of jobs first-hand. The programme addresses the lack of awareness amongst students and teachers of the very wide range of careers in the industry and the shortage of exciting opportunities for students to try roles out before they make important decisions about their careers.
