Scottish Government’s Building Standards Division is working in partnership with Local Authority Building Standards Scotland (LABSS) and Skill Development Scotland (SDS) to review the existing career path(s) and look at the potential for new opportunities within the building standards profession. The aim of the project is to develop a career pathway specifically for building standards, targeted at school leavers and graduates.
This project is being undertaken to support the Year of Young People 2018 which aims to inspire Scotland through its young people, celebrating their achievements, valuing their contribution to communities and creating new opportunities for them to shine locally, nationally and globally. Pye Tait Consulting has been appointed to take forward this project which it will kick off with a stakeholder event on Monday 21 January 2019.
STF has been invited to participate in the stakeholder event. Any STF member with a particular interest in this area – and who would like to attend the stakeholder event – is asked to contact Stuart McKenna ([email protected]) for more details.
