Inspiring Construction

by NFRC Scotland | Jun 12, 2018
Earlier this month two traditional building skills demonstrations took place in Scotland, one in Edinburgh the other in Falkirk both of which were supported by the NFRC Scottish Region. 
 
The demos were attended to by local school children, members of the public and MSPs. Following the 'Inspiring Construction' events motions were raised in the Scottish Parliament showing their support.


 
Inspiring Construction - Edinburgh

That the Parliament welcomes the Inspiring Construction event in St Andrew Square Gardens, Edinburgh, on 4-5 June 2018; considers that it is widely reported that the construction industry has an aging workforce and projected skills shortages, therefore influential stakeholders across the supply chain came together to promote the industry and the many varied and desirable career paths that it can offer and the breadth of roles within construction to help young people make an informed choice about their future careers; notes that the event featured apprentices demonstrating traditional building skills, including masonry, slate roofing, joinery and painting and decorating; recognises that the event was a collaboration that included the National Federation of Roofing Contractors, Edinburgh College, Fife Council, Stone Federation Great Britain, Historic Environment Scotland, Architecture & Design Scotland, Scottish Contractors Group, Developing the Young Workforce Edinburgh, Midlothian & East Lothian, Essential Edinburgh, Built Environment Forum Scotland and CITB Scotland; notes that the primary purpose of the event was to allow Edinburgh pupils from across the city to try the traditional building trades being demonstrated by local apprentices but was also open to members of the public for advice, with the aim of highlighting the importance of traditional building skills in the construction sector, and welcomes the ongoing work of all partner agencies to draw attention to the necessity for traditional building skills and, in turn, help to create a hi-tech, world-class industry with outstanding career prospects, helping companies to skill-proof their businesses, invest in skills and plan for the future.
