The CDI in partnership with iCeGS at the University of Derby is undertaking research on behalf of the National Home Builders Confederation which investigates attitudes to careers in the homebuilding industry.

The homebuilding sector is experiencing a skills shortage and this important research will support the development of a new strategy to promote the varied careers in the sector and could potentially lead to new resources for young people and adults thinking of entering this sector. Please help us by completing the survey (it should take you between 5-10 minutes max) and forwarding the link to any colleague who you think will be interested in responding.

The survey is one of a number of approaches which will investigate the issues and we will be approaching schools and colleges across England to participate in focus groups. If you can help us by suggesting organisations who might wish to participate please contact Nicki Moore at
