A key aspect in the development of the programme was the involvement of the Construction Industry. After initial discussions with local organizations it was clear that a real need existed to develop industry awareness. A steering group was formed consisting of the organizations listed below.
Regular meetings were scheduled to discuss such issues as module content, course delivery, work based learning and marketing strategy. This information was then shared with a wider consulting group consisting of about 20 members made up of the professional institutions, BRE and key industry clients such as Sainsbury and United Utilities.
This has culminated in what we believe is a programme that has been “ developed by the construction industry for the construction industry”.
