Plastering course attendees could benefit from construction recovery in 2011People taking plastering courses could be set to see a recovery in the UK's construction sector in the coming years.
Information services company Experian has published its latest Construction Forecast report, which has suggested that a number of industry sectors will see increased activity in 2010-11.
It predicted that the recent decline in private house building activity will come to an end this year before seeing "real growth" in 2011.
James Hastings, head of construction futures at Experian, added: "Despite the depth of public expenditure cuts announced in Tuesday's Budget, public non-residential output is likely to see one more year of growth this year."
The report also suggested that those in the green energy sector may also see increased opportunities, as the focus of the infrastructure sector may soon shift from transport to energy projects.
Last week, the Chartered Institute of Building published research which suggested that plastering courses and electrical qualifications may become increasingly important, due to a widespread recognition of a skills shortage within the construction sector.
