Action Plan 2024

The Building Our Skills Careers Festivals in March 2024 showcased perfectly how capable we are as an industry at developing the types of relationships and partnerships we need to create a workforce for tomorrow. They were a huge success.

Thank you to all those who got involved, it was fantastic to see so many industry companies wanting to play such an active part.

Thank you too to those of you who take part in our regular Advisory Panel meetings, to those who contribute great ideas and initiatives throughout the year,and to those who help spread our messages wherever possible.

The confidence we’ve gained from hosting the careers festivals has convinced us that we truly can establish the Fenestration, Glass and Glazing industry as a career of choice for those preparing to start their working life.

They have given us the perfect platform from which to launch the next phase of what we very much like to think is an industry movement focussed and committed to attracting the best possible talent to work in our factories, our offices and out on site; creating a workforce for tomorrow; delivering a long-term future for our industry.

At a glance, this is what we are planning to deliver in the coming 12 months:

  • FOUR Careers Festivals including two new locations – West Yorkshire and West Midlands, plus South Yorkshire and Greater Manchester
  • The introduction of Workplace Safaris and Mobile Safaris – we will bring schools to your premises, and we will take you to them
  • The launch and promotion of the industry’s own Careers Portal showcasing over 120 individual job roles across eleven distinct career families
  • The development and launch of an Apprenticeship Forum to support young people joining our industry
  • Support, guidance and collateral to support your efforts in whatever you do
