Raising Standards

We:

  • Carry out research
  • Develop learning resources
  • Work with stakeholders

Providing training is just one of many ways in which we are working to raise the standards of site engineers in the UK.

In addition to direct training delivery we work with industry stakeholders to analyse and address the skills gap and undertake focussed research.

Here are some of our current projects:

  • Our book and online course have been developed to make the relevant learning available to those who are unable to attend in-person training.
  • Recently we have worked closely with the CITB to develop new courses which have now become the recognised national standard in setting out courses.
  • We have been commissioned by the Scottish Civils Training Group to carry out CITB funded research into how Scottish Universities are meeting the needs of the construction industry.
  • We have trained a number of college and university lecturers to deliver surveying modules effectively and our trainers regularly deliver nationally recognised qualifications in Scottish and English universities and colleges.
  • We are pleased to be working with a group of construction companies to review and analyse the content of course content at HNC and HND level.

If you would like to get involved in raising standards, whether you have a suggestion for a relevant learning resource, access to funding for a research project, a network of contacts you can share or even just being able to offer your own perspective, get in touch. We are always happy to connect with other individuals and organisations who would like to make positive changes in the construction industry. Email saffron@settingoutforconstruction.com.
