Phil Eves, Education Coordinator at BAM Construction Midlands Limited

“As a construction company, we are always searching for candidates who are committed to a role in construction. We see T-levels as being the missing ‘jigsaw’ piece in finding the right talent as they have the support of the employer at the centre of everything.

Providing a student with an industry placement during the course enables both the young person and employer to see where the student can fit within the organisation. This helps to establish their knowledge and skill set to meet the needs of the employer and put them in good stead to further progress their career.

As a parent myself, I have great confidence in the progression opportunities for young people through T-levels. I’m excited to see the number of schools, colleges and UTC’s offering T-levels increasing, so a greater number of students and employees can reap the benefits.”
