Mapping Projects aims to help unite fragmented industry

The Construction Youth Trust is launching an employer lead online database which aims to encourage knowledge share, promote partnering and enable strategic planning for organisations across the North West. The project which will be launched on 23rd September 2008 is also able to show individuals entering and progressing in the industry how to access support in order to achieve their construction ambitions.

Construction Mapping is currently being piloted in the North West, should it prove successful we would look to find further funding to enable it to launch it across the UK.

The website which is now live and available at www.constructionmapping.com is free for all users and we would encourage people to go online and enter their details.

Jo Lynch Deputy Head of Construction at Manchester College said “this is a much needed recourse both for the employer and the individual enabling us as a college to see where the gaps are, and for our students to find routes into work”
