National skill shortage
Think Big Academy is ambitious about leaving a true lasting legacy across the communities in which we work. That's why profits generated through our apprenticeship operations will go towards the development of affordable housing solutions. This will ensure families will not have to experience crowded and unacceptable living conditions. We want to generate a community where all young individuals, parents and children are provided with equal opportunities and given our community the start in life they deserve.
In line with the 224,000 new recruits needed within the construction industry by 2020, Think Big Academy will actively work across communities to educate younger individuals on career prospects within the industry. We will not only offer apprenticeship programmes, but we will train individuals into becoming multi-skilled operatives and help them secure long-term employment upon completion, boosting employments rates and increasing opportunities across communities.
