UK Construction training – is ‘dysfunctional’ says report
Modernise or Die: Britain’s construction industry faces ‘inexorable decline’ unless longstanding problems are addressed, including UK Construction Training according to an independent review commissioned by the government.
In February 2016, quantity surveyor Mark Farmer was commissioned by the Construction Leadership Council, at the request of government, to undertake a review of the UK’s construction labour model. He has now delivered that report.
The Farmer Review of the UK Construction Labour Model, subtitled Modernise or Die, highlights construction’s dysfunctional training model, its lack of innovation and collaboration as well as its non-existent research and development (R&D) culture.
