Building Blaby Futures

Building Blaby Futures is an innovate project to have a training facility that sits alongside the New Lubbersthorpe development. This will benefit all involved, but most importantly it will build a pipeline of skilled construction workers for the future.

Blaby District has a significant housing development, underway and planned, and the demand will only increase. We know there is a shortage of skilled workers, and this project will look to address the problem by growing the construction workforce.

There is evidence that this proactive approach has led to similar models working successfully in other areas; with partners pledging to transform the supply of much needed, highly skilled local labour to meet the ever-growing demands of the area’s construction and housing industries.

The Education, Skills and Training Pilot has initiated this process, alongside the housebuilders and District Education providers, Blaby District Council sees this initiative as the next step to strengthen this work and allow us to deliver more volume at a faster pace.
