Construction Industry on the rise again!

The construction industry is on the rise again after a strong month in November.

Since Brexit the construction industry endured a few tough months, however, in recent months it has been on the rise with more work being completed and started.

In November, the construction industry increased its output at the fastest rate in eight months. Workloads have been boosted for some companies and this has allowed for construction work to be completed that may have been stalled in previous months.

Also, the rise in the construction industry towards the end of this year has seen an increase in employment for construction workers. Lots of Able Skills students are now out there amongst the construction industry now employed and working in their new trades.

The industry is at its highest point since March, however, it is still lower than it has been for nearly two years and the skills shortage is affecting more work being completed.

The skills shortage has been affecting the industry for the last few years and work has been left uncompleted due to companies failing to find enough skilled workers. However, more and more people are making the change to train and work in the construction industry and this could be a reason why the industry is on the rise.

Able Skills have been offering construction training for nearly 15 years and many of our students that take the qualification courses will go on to work on-site. The skills shortage has highlighted an opportunity for people around the UK to start a new career in construction.

We have been running construction courses in five different construction trades. We have offered NVQ training and on-site assessments so our students can achieve an NVQ and apply for a CSCS card to work on-site.

If you are interested in training to join a rising construction industry, please contact 01322 280202 today for more information and we will be more than happy to help.
