Growing the Industry

CWIC has been involved in several projects since it was established in 2016.  The projects below cover construction in the broadest sense from inspiring children to consider our industry to supporting young people into the workplace to promoting the varied roles construction has to offer.

Constructive Education

The Contextualised Curriculum Project (CCP) as it was originally known is a 3 year, CITB funded programme delivering a pan-Wales construction education offer targeted at Primary, Secondary, and Alternative education providers. The project also enhances the current construction focussed Welsh Baccalaureate challenges.

Inspiring young people

Go Construct – Engage’s aims were to increase knowledge of the industry amongst parents, teachers, and careers advisors to ensure that there is a better understanding of the opportunities available for the future workforce.

Practical Experience

Go Construct – Experience was a 3-year CITB funded experiential learning project.

Its aim was to provide core knowledge of the careers and responsibilities of those working within technical and professional careers in the construction industry and insight into innovative projects that have been delivered by leading construction companies across Wales and the UK.

Furthermore, it sought to change the perception of construction to students and to inform and educate teachers of the exciting careers within an ever-evolving and innovative industry.
