Talent Training + Development Map
HOUSING IS A CAREER NOT A GIG.
…and we need more talent.
This is no surprise, but it’s high time for a more coordinated effort across the industry to help fill the labor pipeline.
Once we’ve helped change the narrative (we’re working on tools to do just that), the next step is taking people from interest to action.
Like we did with our Off-Site Heat Map, we’re creating a one-stop-shop where people who are interested in joining our industry can identify opportunities for training, mentorships, apprenticeships, sponsored training and four-year degrees throughout the U.S. that will help set them up for success.
Below are the types of organizations we’ll be highlighting. If you know someone we should be featuring on the map, please complete the form via the link above. If you have any comments on our approach or want to work with us to ensure this tool’s success, contact us.
TYPES OF TRAINING OR DEVELOPMENT
Career + Technical Education (CTE)
Programs that provide an important pathway to success for high school students, including Introduction to Building and Construction Trades + Construction Technology.
Non-degree programs in specialty areas such as plumbing or electrical and universal skill sets such as job-site safety.
Degree-based program completed in 2 years for a career on the construction management side of the business.
Programs that subsidize the education costs of talent while they get on-the-job experience. In some instances, pre-apprenticeship programs are offered – lasting a few weeks to a few months. This allows people to see if the bigger program is a good fit.
4-year Degree– Mfr
Degree-based program completed in 4 years for a career on the construction management side of the business.
Trade Training + Adult Ed
Non-union programs that provide trade skills for adults regardless of their prior education.
