We have started out on a journey to inspire youngsters to become the future workforce of the Fenestration Industry. You can play your part. Why not get in touch and see how you can get involved…
Talking to young people about our industry cannot start too soon.
The Education Sector is increasingly keen to engage with the Business Sector to learn about different industries and the career options they offer, and for the Fenestration Industry the timing could not be more perfect.
We all recognise that the industry is facing a skills shortage, and this campaign is designed to offer a long term solution, while other areas of the Building Our Skills campaign look for short and medium terms solutions.
Tell me more….
Our Inspiring the Future campaign is being promoted in association with FENSA and the Education and Employers Organisation and is a great starting point for this journey. It is an initiative that anybody can get involved with.
All you have to be able to do is give up one hour a year to talk to school children about the job you do and the industry you do it in.
If enough people from our industry sign up to do this we can make significant inroads into getting the word Fenestration into the minds of young people in a way we’ve never done before, and help them to understand the amazing array of career paths open to them if they make the industry their career of choice.
This is how we can start to develop a future workforce for the industry and make sure that there is no skills gap in the long term.
Our campaign goal is to recruit 100 Fenestration Industry employees by the end of 2021 to help promote the industry to the education sector….
