CIOB Leeds, Sheffield and York joined together in April to host their first Education Forum.

Nine education institutes, including CIOB-accredited universities and local colleges, joined together for a virtual meeting with committee members and local staff.

The forum provided a chance for colleges and universities to hear about developments from the CIOB Education Team and the Inspiring Tomorrow’s Leaders project. They also offered their opinions on how the CIOB locally is working with them and areas where the industry and the institute can improve.

“The conversations were lively and inspiring and provided a clear vision of construction education across the county”

“The conversations were lively and inspiring and provided a clear vision of construction education across the county, including where we are going next and lessons learned from the pandemic,” said Kat Seymour from the CIOB.

“Attendees had a chance to network in smaller groups and discuss how blended learning is working. Following this session, we will be looking at a more joined-up approach to our guest lecturing and employer/education links.”

The next forum is planned for the autumn term.
