Staff at Clarkson Evans have been asked to share their knowledge and experience of addressing the skills shortage in the housebuilding industry at a programme of national seminars being organised by the National House Building Council (NHBC).

Running for more than 20 years, ‘Building for Tomorrow’ is the NHBC’s annual series of seminars where experts share best practice and present the latest technical updates in housebuilding.

This year’s seminar programme will focus on ‘Future skills, Future standards, Future quality’, acknowledging the skills shortage in the housebuilding industry.

Clarkson Evans has a tried and tested formula for recruiting apprentice electricians and will be sharing the company’s experience with delegates attending the seminar programme, starting in Taunton on February 27th.

“The skills shortage in the construction industry has been well-documented nationally and whilst we do not profess to have all the answers our highly successful apprenticeship programme is testament to what we have achieved in this arena,” said Lindsey Young, Chief Operating Officer at Clarkson Evans.

“We will also be showcasing our quality control processes and explaining how investing in staff training and development is vital to maintaining standards on site,” added Lindsey, who will be presenting alongside Simon Kingwell, Production Director at Clarkson Evans.

Lindsey and Simon will be presenting at a total of seven seminars nationwide and hope that their involvement will not only help to raise standards in the housebuilding industry but also inspire other businesses to follow their lead in apprenticeship training.
