Watch to see how BuildBack can benefit your business and the progamme in action

FIS went behind the scenes at Sandwell College to film candidates in action on its BuildBack training programme, which covers the skills and competencies required for installing drylining.

The programme aims to get individuals site ready and aware of the health and safety requirements of being on site, before being placed on two-weeks work experience.

FIS also hosted a webinar to explain how BuildBack offers support for employers who are experiencing labour shortages. The emphasis is on this being of no direct financial cost to employers. You can watch this here and find out how BuildBack can benefit your business.

BuildBack has candidates ready for work placement, so if you have any opportunities to help them get started in our sector, email and FIS can do the rest.
