College to collaborate with Jobcentre to plug construction skills gap

The City of Liverpool College will join forces with Jobcentre Plus (JCP) in an effort to address the shortage of work-ready candidates in the region’s booming construction industry.

JCP staff will liaise with the College’s employability team at its new £500k Construction Hub training facility located on the site of a planned £5bn Liverpool Waters project in Peel’s disused Northern Docklands.

The Hub will provide skills training in both trades and supporting roles for unemployed people or those on low income to enhance their applications for jobs in Merseyside’s emergent construction industry.

The Department for Work and Pensions has reported a significant demand for skilled people within the Liverpool City Region construction industry, and aims to upskill people back into employment to fill these roles.
