ARTICLE OF THE WEEK
CITB is developing a new digital service featuring work experience opportunities on local construction sites as part of a drive to link candidates with employers. Although not BIM specific, seeing the CITB invest in an information portal for careers in construction bodes well for our BIM Graduate shop window project. For more information on that, please email firstname.lastname@example.org

QUOTE OF THE WEEK
“…as the technology develops and the industry matures in its adoption of all things digital, a greater emphasis will be on education and training providers to prepare their learners with these skills for employment. For this reason, the collaboration between industry employers, awarding bodies and education providers as well as the commitment from all is key to its success.”
