2015 Highlights

2015 Highlights

As the year draws to a close, we reflect on some of our highlights from 2015.

From all of us at Construction Youth Trust, we would like to wish all our supporters a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. It has been a fantastic year, and we couldn’t have done it without you. We have achieved so much this year and have helped to educate, train and inspire many young people about careers in the construction industry. With your help, next year is looking to be even bigger, so please continue your support in order to help us to help them.

Here is how we helped our beneficiaries this year:

  • We have reached over 4000 young people
  • Over 1100 people have benefited by undertaking either a Budding Builders or Budding Brunels programme
  • Just over 500 young people have achieved an accredited qualification
  • 240 have completed a work experience  placement within the construction industry
  • 275 have progressed into further education, higher level training or a job
