Think Construction

Inspire a new generation – in just one hour you can share your construction career story with students near you. Think Construction is a resource pack for CIOB members working to encourage young people (14-19) to consider the construction sector as a first-choice, career destination.

The pack has been inspired by enquiries and feedback from members looking for resources to help them with school outreach sessions. The content has been shaped by research carried out with young people to understand their perceptions of the industry as well as input from teachers and industry advisers.

The Think Construction Pack

Please answer the following questions and provide your details to receive access to the materials. Your responses will help us to better understand what resources you need and how we can improve the materials available to you.

If you have any questions about the resource pack please email us at


We have partnered with Inspiring the Future where you can sign up to volunteer just one hour of your time to speak at local schools and colleges about your career and why you love working in construction – it’s one of the best ways to encourage young people into the sector.

To sign up go to the Inspiring the Future site and register as an individual volunteer. Make sure you say you’re a CIOB member on your profile. Anyone can volunteer- from Apprentices to CEOs!

How to sessions

We also offer short familiarisation webinars for those interested in using the materials in the pack and a national matchmaking service where members can sign up to be contacted by local schools and colleges to go in and run short sessions (around 40 mins – or more if they like), sharing their own career paths and utilising the resources. The first one will take place at the beginning of June – information will be available to book on our events pages.
