Abstract

All training has the same common, business-critical objective: to equip learners with the skills necessary to be successful and, therefore, to enable organisations to reach their full potential.

For some time, as an industry, we have discussed “skills-gaps”. There is a clear lack of skill in the application of digital construction methodologies. With international standards in place instructing the use of BIM and digital construction processes on construction and infrastructure projects, we clearly have the what to do in place, but lack the expertise on how to deliver it!

That is why it is important to educate the benefits of digital working practices and how to apply them to projects from a young age. We need to not only tap into their curiosity of young people, but actively encourage creativity and innovation, then provide a platform to express this.

By introducing digital working methods and practices to our young generations now will future proof construction for the next set of innovators and forward thinkers to create even further progressive technologies and have the ability to apply these tools. Businesses are in desperate need of workers skilled in this area, educators need to realise they have the ability to close the skills gap.
