Our construction and FM Skills Centres represent MITIE’s largest community investment. We give young people a chance to realise their potential, offering vocational training for all.
In the construction centres, young people between the ages of 14 and 16 are taught a range of construction skills, and obtain nationally-recognised vocational qualifications. Based in community-focused schools, the teaching is provided by dedicated construction teachers who cover basic practical skills for the BTEC Certificate and Diploma in Construction. Subjects include bricklaying, painting and decorating, carpentry and joinery and some of the centres also provide DIY classes for the local community out of school hours.
The FM Skills Centres provide a blended learning opportunity for post-16 year old students, combining valuable work experience under the guidance of MITIE professionals on live contracts, with vocational learning provided by experienced trainers. The students work towards the new NVQ/SVQ level 2 Facilities Services qualification enabling them to pursue careers in a range of FM services.
The Skills Centres are a great example of how we’re ensuring the right processes and systems are in place to nurture relationships with clients and suppliers. By developing students' learning and work experience we’re not only adding value to our clients, but we’re on the right track to ensuring a sustainable future for our workforce requirements.
