A series of online mini-modules has been developed by University College of Estate Management (UCEM) for Buildforce as part of the CITB’s Pathways into construction programme focusing on Veterans.
Register with BuildForce to access a series of bespoke construction training modules for Veterans which have been created by University College of Estate Management (UCEM).
These modules have been designed in response to research carried out by UCEM which found that Veterans would like to learn about roles within the industry, how a construction site works, salaries and career progression, and self-employment.
The following modules will provide an insight into industry and allow you to explore your desired discipline further:
