“Bums on seats” in the construction industry

A BBC reporter discusses skills shortages with a representative from the Construction Industry Training board.
“The message now is that we will have to grow more of our own, that’s more apprenticeships, more people coming out of FE, more people with career changes”.
“But the tradition here for the last 20 years has been that British construction companies fill their skills gap with cheap imported labour“.
“Well I think we will have to now, I think it will be more growing our own and investing in technology”.
