First Insight to Onsite

First Insight to On-site is a one day induction to the world of Construction.

The programme has been developed through extensive consultation with employers & trainers within the industry.

It is a programme designed to provide appropriate industry advice & guidance, for those seeking to enter the construction industry.

The programme is intended for anyone interested in taking up employment or training within the Construction Industry & is ideal for:

  • Young People at School, who are reviewing their subject options or seeking careers guidance about construction related trades & careers.
  • Young People at College, who are in Full Time FE training (especially those seeking to take up apprenticeships).
  • Unemployed individuals who are seeking employment in the industry.
  • Employed individuals who are seeking a career change in construction.

The programme delivery can be customised, as appropriate, to ensure relevant participant needs are met. Essentially we recognise, that the needs of those still at school & considering training & employment progression options are different from adults who may be in training, unemployed or considering a career change.

Participants can be of any age (from 14+), ethnic origin or sex & be unemployed or employed.

Content of the programme builds upon the needs of employers within the industry & issues that individuals will face when working within the industry.

The programme covers key issues such as Health & Safety, CSCS, employers & employee expectations, rights & responsibilities, teamwork & on-site working conditions. Content of the programme is both realistic & comprehensive to ensure individuals get a real Insight into the Construction Industry & to dispel common myths & misconceptions.

The programme is designed to take one full day, which includes a visit to a real Construction site.

TOPPS can also arrange transportation to the site, relevant protective clothing & refreshments for the day’s delivery as part of this as necessary.

Why choose TOPPS - First Insight to Onsite?

“Young People coming into Construction training do not fully understand what the industry is about. This programme explains the reality of site, as well as employer & industry requirements.”

Ivor Williams ( Dudley College – Lecturer)

The First Insight programme gives "Real Insight into the reality of the construction industry sharpens the awareness of the skills and qualities individuals need for a successful career choice in construction and the importance of training and nationally recognised qualification."

Linda Hutchings (Connexions Personal Advisor).
