Engineering Your Future - ECITB Career Progression Route Map
The Engineering Construction Industry Training Board (ECITB) has launched a new interactive online Career Progression Route Map tool, to make it easier for school- leavers and graduates to find rewarding jobs and manage their careers in the engineering construction industry.
The engineering construction industry is critical to the country’s economy and this tool has been designed to help get the right people into the right jobs with the right skills.
The launch of this new tool coincides with the completion of a massive overhaul of the qualifications and career paths in engineering construction.
From Apprentice to Managing Director, the new ECITB Career Progression Route Map (CPRM) will give school leavers, graduates and others looking for a career in the industry, a clear insight into the career paths available to them. The interactive tool provides detailed information on different roles, and the training and qualifications needed to enhance their careers, within the engineering construction industry.
Over the next 10 years around 60,000 new jobs will be created and the CPRM will help potential recruits and those in the early stages of their careers to match their skills more precisely. People can explore the varied, rewarding and exciting career opportunities in the UK’s engineering construction industry and review potential career paths, learning from the experiences and career progression of those already in the industry through video podcasts and case studies.
The CPRM currently contains information on around 170 roles and this will evolve as new roles are added or updated to meet industry needs. Users enter basic details such as qualifications, experience and interests and the tool filters through a wide selection of roles to highlight those that may be of particular interest. From this list the user can explore the details of these individual roles.
In addition to information about what individual industry roles involve and how these can fit together over a career, there are real life case studies that serve to illustrate how actual careers can evolve.
