The government is focused on reaching its target to build 300,000 new homes by the end of the year!


It has been estimated that the current volume of new builds is around 220,000 to envigorate this plan the government are pushing for a scheme that will see more on the job training, however, this type of training may fill the gap but will not result in new skilled workers. Proper training and teaching must be done to create a skilled and capable workforce.
