Demand for more housing reflects in the rapid growth of new homes being built across the UK, with Residential Building now one of the largest areas of the construction sector. The government outlines the country needs an estimated 300,000 homes per year to meet targets.
Following the effects of the pandemic, industry now expects the housing market to grow by 12% in 2022.
Since 2019, many local authorities have also introduced their own residential building provisions to help aid and support low-income and social housing needs – increasing their demand for skilled workers and suitably qualified supply chain members.
Supporting housing initiatives nationally
Citrus Training supports many companies that work in this space, including national home-building companies and their key supply chain members. And we work with key sector skills councils and organisations to ensure that we are working to support relevant housing initiatives, increasing skills and recognised qualifications across the residential building sector.
The availability of Citrus relatable training courses in this sector across the UK ensure we are well-positioned to support all critical regional residential building projects.
