New Future of Construction Bootcamp for Devon

YTKO announces its new Skills Bootcamp – Future of Construction.  This training is being delivered through our Building Growth South West programme, to help businesses identify and understand the benefits of modern methods of construction and offsite solutions.

This training has been developed with business leaders? in response to the popularity of new methods of home building and emerging construction technologies across the county to meet the environmental targets set within the Devon Carbon Plan on behalf of Devon County Council.

Through this training course, businesses will learn how to reduce the environmental impact of construction, whilst building their confidence in the requirement for traditional trades and skills, which continue to be fundamental to the industry. The course will cover a range of topics including how to improve air quality, ways to be more energy efficient, methods to reduce waste, reducing the reliance on fossil fuels and understanding the benefits of different Modern Methods of Construction (MMC) categories.

This training will be delivered through a blend of virtual and in-person weekly masterclasses which will include site visits, online seminars and support from local industry experts and mentors. The training can be delivered as a 10-week programme or a fast track 6 or 8 week programme depending on the level of time you have available to commit. 

Skills Bootcamp – Future of Construction is part of the UK Government’s Lifetime Skills Guarantee, helping everyone gain ‘Skills for Life’. The Skills Bootcamp is FREE to individuals.   The level of funding provided will depend on your employment status and employer co-funding will depend on the size of the company you work for. The training is funded by the Department for Education, through Devon County Council and delivered by YTKO, through Building Growth South West.  Click here to see all funding options
