Course Overview

Given the sharp decline the industry has suffered in the recession it is somewhat surprising that recruitment has held up so well, this may indicate that many young people consider the industry will continue to offer rewarding employment within the UK and overseas. However, the construction industry has the advantage that it is one of the few UK industries which cannot be shipped abroad, and there is much work needed to both the UK infrastructure and housing stock.
