Join this webinar to hear how HS2 are investing now to ensure they have the skilled workforce in the future.

It is estimated up to 750,000 construction workers could retire or are on the verge of retiring over the next 15 years. With just 20% of construction workers currently aged under 30 it is clear there is a skills gap which needs plugging.

HS2 presents a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to provide a step change in skills and help turn the UK into a global centre of excellence for high speed rail and related industries. Our apprenticeship programme is now in its fourth year and provides opportunities across a range of disciplines including project management, business admin, software development, procurement and community engagement. In December 2020, we opened applications for our 2021 graduate scheme which received over 1000 applications. We also support the SMF’s programmes to help young people from low-income backgrounds to reach their full potential both at university and in their careers.

Join our webinar to hear how HS2 are investing now to ensure we have the skilled workforce in the future and what life is like working on Europe’s biggest infrastructure project.

On the panel will be

Richard Winter, Education Manager, HS2 Ltd

Sarah Atkinson, Chief Executive, Social Mobility Foundation

The panel will be followed by a question and answer session.
