If you operate in the built environment sector and are looking to attract and retain bright young talent, you’ve come to the right place.
PlanBEE, a partnership of architects, builders, engineers, surveyors and project managers, came together to shake up the traditional way young people are recruited and trained in the construction sector.
In 2013, founding partners Ryder Architecture, Arup, Brims, Cundall, FaulknerBrowns, Sir Robert McAlpine, Tolent, Xsite and 3E Consulting, joined forces with Gateshead College to design and deliver a Higher Apprenticeship in Architectural Engineering and Management providing an alternative route into the industry than university.
In 2020 the partnership saw the opportunity to extend the programme to support unemployed young people into work in the sector via the Government’s Kickstarter programme.
