ISG is taking part in an initiative to provide school leavers with an insight into the construction industry and the opportunity to earn a professional accreditation. The scheme is being piloted at ISG’s £400K project to refurbish a youth centre in Newton Heath, Manchester, which is being funded by the government’s Youth Capital Plus programme as part of its commitment to reduce youth unemployment and promote skills training.

The redevelopment of the Newton Heath centre is part of a government initiative to provide high quality youth facilities in neighbourhoods that have traditionally suffered from higher levels of crime and anti-social behaviour. Over the course of the project, to refurbish the existing single-storey building into a new youth centre, ISG has welcomed a number of school leavers onto site for an intensive three week introduction to construction. The visitors have the opportunity to experience life on a construction site, learn about health & safety, get the chance to see various trades in action and ultimately work towards a professional certificate of competence, through the Construction Skills Certification Scheme (CSCS).

Terry Winchester, Project Manager at Manchester City Council, explained: “ISG has really embraced this important initiative, which is a key element of our youth employment strategy. The basic idea is to give school leavers the chance to get some real life experience of working in the construction industry, which represents a major employer across the UK. In addition to gaining vital experience, individuals are able to work towards gaining their CSCS basic operatives card, which provides prospective employers with an insight into that person’s core competencies.”

Craig Tatton, managing director of ISG’s construction business, commented: "Enthusing young people into the possibilities of a career in the construction industry is something that as a business we take very seriously. Providing an insight into the realities of a modern construction site represents an excellent opportunity for young people to see the full range of professions that come together to help successfully deliver a project. This latest initiative has hopefully started a number of individuals on their way towards a rewarding, challenging and fulfilling career in construction.”
