Following the successful Midlands-based BuildBack cohort which took place last month, we are pleased to announce that the nationwide roll-out, part of the Fit-Out Futures strategy, will begin at Sheffield College in May.
The FIS BuildBack programme puts job seekers through two weeks of college drylining training followed by two weeks of onsite work experience with an employer, equipping them with the skills and competencies required to pursue a career in drylining.
We will be hosting a series of employer open days across the country; designed for employers to come along and meet with the drylining trainees and programme partners, look around the college facilities and hear more about the BuildBack programme and how it can benefit their business. Our partner colleges are scheduled to be opening their doors on the following dates:
For local employers, this is an ideal opportunity to select semi-skilled drylining trainees for wage-free assistance on their projects. Getting involved in the FIS BuildBack Programme by providing work experience is a prime opportunity for employers to prove some aspects of fulfilment of their Section 106 contractual obligations.
