Build your career in an industry with a great future.
Whatever your skill set, there’s a place for you in construction.



The Building Plymouth partnership believes it’s vital to increase awareness of career opportunities in construction and the built environment with the next generation. To do this, we’ve joined forces with many great schools in the city to help us to spread the word. Let’s work together to transform the prospects for the city’s next generation of construction personnel.

The world of construction and education

As a city, the Construction Excellence South West’s ‘Adopt a School’ programme is designed to engage, inspire and educate the future generation on the interesting world of construction. With STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) becoming an increasingly important part of the curriculum, we want to show how STEM topics and construction go together in the real world.

Bringing the world of construction to life

Construction is an exciting industry which needs to be celebrated. To encourage both primary and secondary students, Building Plymouth worked alongside the National Marine Aquarium for #STEMFest, a fortnight of great events involving over 1,200 students plus industry professionals. The challenge – to design a tank that would hold a giant squid. Events such as these help to reposition construction as an exciting career choice. Download our very own #STEMFest booklet to find out more about the challenge.
