Open Doors Partners
Open Doors will be delivered by Build UK, in partnership with CITB (under the banner of Go Construct) and in association with Considerate Constructors Scheme, Construction News and Construction Skills Certification Scheme.
Go Construct is an industry-wide initiative that aims to attract, inform and retain a talented workforce for the Construction and Built Environment sector. Funded by the CITB levy and facilitated by CITB, Go Construct is designed by industry for industry.
CITB is the Industry Training Board and a partner in the Sector Skills Council for the construction industry in England, Scotland and Wales. Representing every part of our industry, we shape how training is delivered and funded to meet the UK construction sector’s evolving needs.
Construction News is published every Thursday in print and digital format, and offers intelligence, comment and knowledge to the construction industry. The magazine is read by the senior managers at contractors, sub-contractors and their supply chains and includes a dedicated SME focused section.
Considerate Constructors Scheme
The Considerate Constructors was founded in 1997 by the construction industry to improve its image. Construction sites, companies and suppliers voluntarily register with the Scheme and agree to abide by the Code of Considerate Practice, designed to encourage best practice beyond statutory requirements. The Scheme's main areas of focus fall into three categories: the general public, the workforce and the environment.
Construction Skills Certification Scheme
CSCS is the leading skills certification scheme within the UK construction industry. CSCS cards provide proof that individuals working on construction sites have the required training and qualifications for the type of work they carry out. The scheme is widely used on the majority of UK construction sites.
