    The purpose of this individual project was to examine the ongoing issue with UK skill storages; focusing on the UK Construction Industry by evaluating the methods, Government initiatives, targets and plans that are in place to help developers, contractors, skilled operatives and schools/FE/HE address this problem.
    Conclusions which can be seen, include the current causes for the UK construction industry skill shortages arising; the identification of any specific trades and professions where skill shortages are particularly sever and whether government targets will be met by the help of methods, schemes and initiatives used by the construction sector and educational system.
    This research study has demonstrated that the Government and Construction Industry needs to work closer together to set a plan of how to diminish the old perception, promote the industry as a first choice and attract young students, male and female to the industry to fill the current skill shortages.
