Construction Skills Fund On-Site Training Hubs programme
IES is evaluating the Construction Industry Training Board’s On-Site Training Hubs programme. There are around 20 training hubs in England, located on home-building and infrastructure sites. The hubs are training new entrants to the construction industry, ideally more quickly than other training routes, in order to help tackle skills shortages.
Our evaluation has a detailed scoping phase, during which we’ll visit each of the hubs to find out about their approach. We’ll then design an evaluation framework, which will likely include case-study research, an online survey of trainees and analysis of management information data. It’s a two-year project and is one of the National Retraining Schemes included in the government's Industrial Strategy.
