UK faces a skills shortage of bricklayers
A shortage of skilled workers in the construction industry pushed up wages in the sector in 2015 and could threaten some of the government’s biggest housing and infrastructure programmes, the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (Rics) has said.
Bricklayers and quantity surveyors were in particularly short supply, with six in 10 Rics survey respondents having difficulty finding them for projects.
That’s the quote by an article in The Guardian. There is currently an opportunity for young people to do an apprenticeship in bricklaying as the sector clambers out of its deep recession. According to a recent sample of 1,804 apprenticeship vacancies taken from the National Apprenticeship Service in February 2016, only 14 were in the construction industry, with each vacancy attracting around 20 applicants. So there is obviously a high demand from young people for more apprenticeship opportunities in construction.
