Building a Future Fit Workforce: NTU and Morgan Sindall podcast

The world of work is changing rapidly. Innovation is enabling and disrupting industries in equal measure. Listen to this NTU and Morgan Sindall discussion on the rapidly changing world of work in the construction industry.

Continuing to build on a partnership with NTU, Morgan Sindall along with Scape Group have come together to hold a discussion on the topic of “Building a Future Fit Workforce". The podcast discusses the ways the business community, education providers and local authorities are working together to tackle the skills shortage in the East Midlands.

Listen to the discussion

  • What progress has the industry made in shaking off dated stereotypes of being ‘dirty and dangerous’?
  • Are schoolchildren being given the right guidance and encouragement to consider the array of career routes into the industry?
  • And how can the next generation of construction workers be best equipped to thrive in an era of automation, artificial intelligence and drones?

These are just some of the questions discussed in this podcast by representatives from three Midlands-headquartered organisations at the vanguard of ensuring the construction industry does have a future-fit workforce.

Speakers include:

Sean Bowles Managing Director of Morgan Sindall Construction & Infrastructure’s Construction Central business unit

Danielle Hayward-Nightingale Graduate Business Manager at Scape Group, the leading public sector framework provider

Dr. Andrew Knight Dean of the School of Architecture, Design and the Built Environment at Nottingham Trent University
