On Friday 9 June, Adeana Raper, Employment & Skills Manager at Henry Boot Construction, attended the ‘Step up into Construction’ event at Wakefield College.

‘Step up into Construction’ is an exciting project designed to attract more employees into construction industries and allow employers to invest in the future of construction.

The project is a joint venture between CITB and Leeds City Region and is a strategic partnership between a number of leading Yorkshire based education providers, local councils, housing associations, social enterprise groups, careers advisors, training boards and public sector and government departments. It will engage with hundreds of people to deliver relevant work placements, training, further education and employment.

Henry Boot Construction are working with Groundwork Wakefield and will be offering participating individuals the opportunity of work experience at Kier Property’s Snowhill Retail Park development. Groundwork Wakefield’s course is aimed at those aged over 16 who are not in education, employment or training.

“Henry Boot Construction are committed to supporting the ‘Step up into Construction’ initiative and are looking forward to continuing to inspire young people about a career in the construction sector.”
