What is Construction and the Built Environment (C&BE)?

C&BE covers every stage of the building process from the architect’s designs right through to the interior designer’s choice of furniture.

As an industry it contributes 7% towards the total UK economy, and the number of jobs available in the West Midlands will keep on rising ready for when our first set of learners graduate±.

Students at the West Midlands Construction UTC (WMCUTC) have their own employer mentors and learn the skills that the industry is crying out for, so you really couldn’t be giving yourself a better chance of working in an industry that’s on the up.

Sound interesting? WMCUTC is looking for the designers, builders and innovators of the future. If you’re aged 13 to 18 and want to make your mark on the world around you, then you’ve come to the right place.
