A recruitment campaign which set out to train high-quality assessors for the construction industry in Scotland has played a vital role in economic recovery.
The two-year project launched back in early 2020 was targeted at experienced tradespeople working in the Construction Sector. It was driven by ESP (External link – Opens in a new tab or window) and the Construction Industry Training Board (CITB), in partnership with Scottish Colleges, government agencies and private training providers.
Forth Valley College’s Communications and Marketing team played a crucial role in the planning and implementation of the overall marketing campaign, working closely with the College Development Marketing Network.
Despite the pandemic, the campaign has been deemed a massive success, with over 120 construction workers stepping forward to help support and train the Industry’s future workforce. Individuals have already been matched to Construction Assessor roles across Scotland’s colleges.
The Construction Assessor role has offered a secure and rewarding opportunity for tradespeople with a competitive salary, generous holiday entitlement and benefits package. They are responsible for carrying out a wide range of assessment and verification duties and ensuring apprentices have the skills and knowledge to pass their workplace assessments.
